The Manchester City striker had been considered a serious doubt for Saturday's game after a muscular problem ruled him out of his side's 1-0 victory over Switzerland in the last 16.

However, he took part in the warm-up and also did some ball work at Brasilia's Mane Garrincha National Stadium on Friday afternoon, in the part of the training session that was open to the media. "He's doing pretty well," said Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella.

"We'll see how he responds today (Friday) and then see if he's able to start."
