‘The whole trip was like this’: Miserable Argentina legend Sergio Aguero is surrounded by singing Brazil fans who partied around him on his long flight to Qatar for the World Cup in hilarious video
Argentina legend Sergio Aguero would have hoped for a quiet and relaxing flight to Qatar for the World Cup, though some excitable Brazilian supporters had other ideas.
The former Manchester City star made 101 appearances for Argentina throughout his career and played many intense encounters with their greatest rivals Brazil.
Aguero, who retired from football last year, shared a hilarious video of his trip to Qatar, which he is on a plane full of singing Brazilian fans who partied around him.

In the clip shared to his social media accounts, the 34-year-old looked uncomfortable on a flight where any possibility of sleep would have been impossible.
He is seen pulling a face and scratching his head as the euphoric Brazilian fans enjoy themselves – with the sound of drums also being played in the background.
Though there has been no confirmation if Aguero was flying from Brazil, ESPN confirmed that he was on a flight to Qatar.
If he was taking the journey from Brazil, then the average flight time between the South American country and the gulf nation is over 14 hours long.

Aguero will be hoping that his flight was not a sign of what’s to come, with Brazil favourites to win the World Cup.
Argentina are also up there as one of the favourites, and if both teams progress through the tournament as expected, they could meet in a titanic semi-final clash.
Earlier this year, Aguero revealed that he was invited to be part of the coaching staff for the Argentina team.
However, he decided to turn down the offer and told ESPN that he was going to Qatar as a fan.

He said: ‘The invitation to be part of Argentina staff was on the table. I spoke with Chiqui [Claudio Tapia, Argentina Football Association president] and I was clear with him about my goal to enjoy my time. I’m going to Qatar, but as a fan.
‘I have a great relationship with everyone from the national team but I don’t see myself in the coaching staff and with the players on a day-to-day basis. They are asking for a role that isn’t for me right now.
‘I had a talk with [Lionel Messi]. He and Lionel Scaloni (Argentina’s manager) gave me an idea of what they wanted from me.
‘I asked them for some time to think about it and then told Chiqui that I wasn’t ready for that. I will be available for any event related to Argentina national team, as an image or an ambassador but I don’t want a day-to-day responsibility with the team.’
Aguero, who played in the last three World Cups for Argentina, retired last year due to a heart condition.
