Argentina will defeat their South American rivals Brazil on Saturday with a strong attacking display from Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero, who has become one of the world's top players regardless of position this season.

He finished third in the Premier League this year with 23 goals scored, which was four short of Wayne Rooney of Manchester United in second and seven short of leader Robin van Persie of Arsenal.

Aguero's ability to score goals is quite impressive, and it's a quality that Argentina is full of as a squad.

With players such as Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria and Gonzalo Higuain leading a very talented forward group with Aguero, Argentina has the best group of attacking players in all of international forward.

Aguero's pace, ability to finish accurately in front of goal and amazing dribbling skills, along with the patience he shows in the penalty area help make him a fantastic attacking player.

Aguero's pace will be an issue for Brazil's back four if world-class center back Thiago Silva cannot participate in the match because of an injury.


Thiago Silva complained of pain in his right knee during that encounter and will not take part in the first session, according to Globoesporte.

Should the AC Milan center-back not make Saturday's match in New Jersey, Sao Paulo's Bruno Uvini looks set to play alongside Juan at the back.

Since Silva is one of the faster central defenders in the world, Aguero would be able to have several quality scoring opportunities on Saturday if Silva isn't able to play.

Aguero is one of the very best players in the world and has a chance to be near his teammate Messi's level very soon. He's that talented.

Expect Aguero to lead an inspired Argentina attack against Brazil this weekend when they score four or more goals en route to a massive victory over their rivals.
