Aguero, making his first appearance for La Albiceleste since June 2016, tucked home debutant Cristian Pavon's cross at the second time of asking to earn his side a 1-0 victory at the Luzhniki Stadium.

Messi is now in Russian Federation with Argentina ahead of tomorrow's friendly as they build towards the World Cup.

Lionel Messi is a big doubt to be named in the squad to face Nigeria, but Man City star Sergio Aguero, PSG duo Angel Di MarĂ­a and Giovani Lo Celso, and Juventus ace Paulo Dybala are all available for selection.

Driussi has represented Argentina at U17 and U20 level, scoring a total of eight goals in 23 appearances, but is yet to join Messi in the full worldwide squad.

Akinfeev produced an impressive one-handed stop to keep Aguero's low effort from 20 yards out of the bottom-right corner midway through the half.

Three minutes later, Aguero forced Akinfeev into a diving save to deny his attempt from just outside the box.

After the interval Argentina continued to dominate possession and kept Russia's defence under constant pressure but failed to find the net before the 86th minute.

Diego Perotti made his first Argentina appearance in over six years and Cristian Pavon was handed a first cap as Sampaoli sought a victor.

The 30-year-old also defended Gonzalo Higuain, who is failing to perform in important tournaments including the 2014 World Cup final.
