MANCHESTER, England (AP) Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero was carried off on a stretcher, in tears, with a hamstring injury during Argentina's 2-0 loss to Ecuador in a World Cup qualifier and faces a spell on the sidelines.

Aguero lasted 24 minutes of Thursday's game before he pulled up sharply, holding his left hamstring, while chasing a long ball.

Argentina coach Gerardo Martino said on City's website that Aguero had arrived on international duty carrying a knock.
