The Super Eagles scored two wonderful goals on Tuesday but it was not still not enough as Atletico Madrid secured a 3-2 win to emerge champions and winners of the inaugural Gotv Max Cup.
Kelechi Nwakali set the tone at the Nest of Champions on Tuesday firing in from 20 yards in the 32nd minute to give Nigeria the lead.
Th celebration for the Eagles was however short-lived as Angel Correa who was voted the MVP of the game got the equaliser for Atletico barely a minute later.
Man of the people Fernando Torres came on as a second half substitute and he made his presence count; nodding in the ball in the 64th to give Atletico the lead
Though Nwakali’s goal was a beauty to behold, Usman Mohammed was even better as he mesmerized the Atletico defense before making it 2-2 for Nigeria.
Slack defending by the Eagles saw them concede another goal in the 85th as Borja Garces scored what prove to the winning goal.
With Genort Rohr watching from the stands it is expected that he would have seen some material good enough to be added to his team going forward even if not for the World Cup.
