Atletico and Spain legend Fernando Torres playing his last game for the club put his team ahead early in the second half before Usman Mohammed equalized for the Super Eagles with a terrific solo effort.

Atletico however had the last say in the game as Borja‘s late goal in the 85th minute ensured the game ended 2-3 in favor of the visitors.
