Aguero: Brazil collapse can happen to anyone

BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil (AP) Germany's 7-1 thrashing of Brazil has left no doubt among Argentina's players about the challenge they face in the World Cup final on Sunday.

Argentina striker Sergio Aguero says the team obviously took account of the rout, and that ''What happened to Brazil could happen to any team.''

But Aguero on Thursday said the Germans, too, have reason ''to be concerned about us, knowing that we have players who can create danger up front. We're in the final for a reason.''

After injuring his thigh in Argentina's last group stage match against Nigeria, the Manchester City striker was sidelined for two knockout games before going on as a substitute in the semifinal Wednesday against the Netherlands.
