Sergio Aguero wary of "counter-attacking" Germany

Argentina striker Sergio Aguero warns his teammates that they should be wary of Germany's counter-attacking threat in the World Cup final.

Sergio Aguero has warned his Argentina teammates that they should be wary of Germany's counter-attacking threat during the World Cup final.

The two nations face off in Rio de Janeiro tonight (Sunday) with the biggest prize in football at stake.

While insisting that Argentina must try to stick to their own style, Aguero believes that the Germans' offensive prowess will be hard to contain.

"We need to play our game, which is to keep possession of the ball, though we also have to keep a close eye on their counter-attacking game, which is very difficult to stop," the striker told FIFA.com.

Aguero is yet to score in his four appearances so far at the tournament.
