Sergio Aguero will miss Argentina's next World Cup match against Switzerland because of a muscle injury in his left thigh.

Argentina team doctor Daniel Martinez on Thursday said Aguero is receiving treatment on the injury and will be evaluated "day by day."

Aguero limped off the pitch in the first half of Argentina's 3-2 win over Nigeria on Wednesday.

Earlier Thursday, team spokesman Andres Ventura denied a report by Argentine newspaper Clarin saying Aguero had been ruled out of the tournament because of the injury.
