Agüero's Memorable Moment(s)

The scenes above as posted by MCFC is arguably the most memorable moment in Agüero's career. An iconic goal and moment in the history of Manchester City FC. May 2012, last game of the season against QPR, in the 94th minute (93:20 actually), Agüero scored the winning goal that clinched City's first Premier League title in history. That goal marked the beginning of huge success for the blue Manchester club.
