Jan Oblak, Juanfran, Gabriel Fernandez Arena, known as Gabi, and Fernando Torres are part of a 20-man Atletico Madrid squad that will face the Super Eagles B side in a friendly on Tuesday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Atletico announced the 20-man squad on their verified Twitter handle on Monday.
The game will take place at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo.
Also in the list are Ghana’s Thomas Partey, Victor Machin Perez known as Vitolo and Kevin Gameiro.
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 this season’s UEFA Europa League after thrashing Marseille 3-0 in the final last week.
They finished second in the just concluded LaLiga season on 79 points.
