In an interview with Stake, Aguero said:“For me he is a great player and is at the same level as the best midfielders like Busquets, Rodri and Casemiro.
“It seems to me that he is valued. What happens is that with him not being in a ‘Big Six’ team, he does not get talked about as much.
“But he has proven himself and I think he is one of the strengths of the England team at the World Cup.“
Aguero has also praised England’s squad for the World Cup in Qatar
“I think they have a team to get excited about. They could not win the Euro but they showed in that tournament that they are a team to be feared.
“I know they have had some losses in defence but they have replacements and also a mix of young players already established like Foden, Mount, Declan Rice, Rashford, Bellingham and Saka with others with more experience like Sterling, Henderson and Kane.”
And on his hopes of Argentina winning the World Cup. Aguero said:“It would be wonderful. Leo and the team deserves it.
“There are even a lot of people in the world who expect Messi to be champion, regardless of which country they are from. And that speaks of the love and respect that has been earned over all these years.
“Argentina arrives very well despite the possibility that some of the boys who have been starting could be sidelined due to injury.
“I hope everyone arrives in the best way. But be that as it may, the Argentine team is very clear about what it plays for and the group is very consolidated.
“Of course, Messi’s leadership is key. I think it will be difficult for any team to dominate Argentina.”
