Sergio Aguero has hinted that Argentina have upset the odds in reaching the World Cup final in Brazil.

The South Americans beat Netherlands in a last-four penalty shootout on Wednesday, after a deadlocked 120 minutes, to set up a showdown with Germany on Sunday.

Aguero successfully converted his spot kick as Sergio Romero saved from Ron Vlaar and Wesley Sneijder to put Argentina through to their fifth World Cup final, and third against Germany.
