And Aguero urged his team to continue getting stronger ahead of their return to Russia next summer for the World Cup finals.
‘I’m happy with the goal and with the victory, we played well and we have to keep growing,’ he said.
‘There are a lot of new players and it’s hard to get to know each other. I remember that we understood each other quite well.
‘We have to continue on this road ahead of the World Cup.’
Although Argentina fielded a strong side that included Messi, Aguero and Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel di Maria, they were frustrated by Russia and their goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev for 85 minutes.
But Aguero’s firm header from close ranger eventually broke the deadlock after a number of good chances had gone begging.
