Atletico Madrid players including, Jan Oblak, Juanfran, Gabriel Fernandez Arena, known as Gabi, and Fernando Torres are part of a 20-man squad that will face the Super Eagles B side in a friendly on Tuesday.

 

Also in the list are Ghana’s Thomas Partey, Victor Machin Perez known as Vitolo and Kevin Gameiro. The game will take place at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo by 6:00pm (WAT).

 



 

However top stars like Antoine Griezmann, Joke and Diego Costa were understandably not included due to preparations towards the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

 

“The LaLiga season is over and we’re going to play a friendly in Nigeria with: Oblak, Werner, Juanfran, Sergi, Montero, Solano, Jota, Rafa Muñoz, Thomas, Gabi, Vitolo, Toni Moya, Agüero, Olabe, Mikel Carro, Joaquín, Torres, Correa, Gameiro and Borja,” Atletico wrote on their handle.

 

 


 

Atletico won the UEFA Europa League after defeating Marseille 3-0 in the Final last week. They finished second in the just concluded LaLiga season.
