Nigeria B fall to narrow Atletico Madrid defeat

Image

A Nigeria B selection were narrowly beaten 3-2 by Atletico Madrid on Tuesday in the GOtv Max Cup at the Godswil Akpabio international Stadium in Uyo.

The Super Eagles team, which comprised both home and foreign-based players, impressed against the UEFA Europa League champions, netting two stunning goals against La Liga's best defence.

Arsenal's Kelechi Nwakali, who spent the second-half of the season on loan at MVV Maastricht, was the standout player, and curled a majestic effort past Jan Oblak in the 31st minute to give the hosts the lead.

The Eagles' lead lasted only two minutes, however, as excessive show boating by Emem Eduok in his own half led to a turnover, and Angel Correa confidently finished with the outside of his right foot after a break.

Atletico took the lead for the first time just past the hour-mark, when departing club legend Fernando Torres, on as a half-time substitute, leapt unchallenged to power a header past Femi Thomas only moments after entering.

Despite trailing, the Eagles remained unperturbed as they matched their more illustrious opponents in every area. The introduction of Tosin Omoyele led to an invigorated approach, with the Plateau United forward leading the high press in attack.

The Atletico defence line struggled to cope with Omoyele's impressive hassling, and the striker duly played in Usman Mohammed, another substitute, who evaded his markers before slotting home a superb equaliser in the 80th minute.

Nigeria weren't able to maintain their concentration until the death, and 18-year-old Borja Garces fired home a late winner as Atleti sealed the victory five minutes from time.

Nigeria Fans Are All Saying The Same Thing About Kelechi Nwakali After Dazzling

Image

Arsenal midfielder Kelechi Nwakali's outstanding display in the 3-2 loss to Atlético de Madrid in a friendly on Tuesday evening got Super Eagles fans talking.

Apart from netting a very beautiful opening goal from outside the box, the former Flying Eagles skipper's dazzling skills were put on display in Uyo and Atlético Madrid's Ghana international Thomas Partey resorted to being aggressive in order to stop him.

Though Super Eagles fans have questioned the decision to omit Kelechi Nwakali from Nigeria's 30-man preliminary World Cup roster, he still has a chance of playing in the tournament, only if one of the 23 players heading to Russia suffers an injury.

Here's what the Super Eagles fans said about the performance of Kelechi Nwakali :

@J_asmineA : ''If they can take him to world cup seff.. Add kelechi Nwakali remove anyone''.

@BoniqqUmoh : ''I have always clamoured for Kelechi Nwakali's invitation to the Super Eagles,dude is class...way better than most of our current midfielders...@thenff pls talk to Rohr,that's Mikel's heir apparent ryt there,am trembling,saw hs sublime passes & screamer?''.

@AObilana : ''Hmmmm the highlight of Kelechi Nwakali goal I just watched is giving me joy. What if this young man gets on the world cup list ahead of Ihenacho or Iwobi?''

@Dr_Xcizzie : ''I think Kelechi Nwakali should be on the super eagles team to the world cup, as back up.''

@Debizzzle : ''#Kelechi nwakali should pls replace onazi on that list Asap "super eagles" #NigAtl''.

@cam14uche : ''@NGSuperEagles coach please check your world Cup list again @KelechiNwakali have to be there, he deserves it, no player in the National team midfield expect mikel Obi can fit to his standard, please give him a chance''.

@otuya_m : '' hope there is space for @Kelechi_nwakali to make the #WorldCup else our coach should drop one of the midfielders cos this dude is the missing link..''

@IamSEGE : ''Kelechi Nwakali should be at the WorldCup''.

@MrSangotoki : ''Kelechi Nwakali is a star for the present and future''.

@JustEkene : ''Kelechi Nwakali should be on the plane to Russia. He’s world class!''.

@Paulanyanwu24 : ''Kelechi nwakali should replace uche agbo immdiately''.

This game showed that we are blessed with raw talent but need to work on the discipline aspect of the game that wins you tournaments at the highest levels.
