NFF Technical committee Mutiu Adepoju has stated that the international friendly between Nigeria’s B team and Atletico Madrid was a “great exposure” for the NPFL based players.
Super Eagles Head Coach, Salisu Yusuf, named a blend of home and foreign based players in Tuesday’s friendly at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium.
Although the newly crowned Europa League winners defeated the patched Nigerian side 3-2 in a thrilling encounter, that saw two spectacular goals from Kelechi Nwakali [Arsenal FC] and Usman Mohammed [Sarpsborg 08].
Adepoju told Brila.net that several names on the pitch on matchday could potentially make the transition to the first team.
