Home-based Super Eagles midfielder Dayo Ojo is delighted with the prospect of facing LaLiga giants Atletico Madrid in a friendly match later this month, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.
The game tagged GOtv Max Cup will hold at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo on May 22, six days after the Europa League final between Atletico and Marseille in Lyon.
It will be the first time Diego Simeone’s men will be visiting Nigeria and the Sunshine Stars player cannot wait to face some of the Spanish club’s top players.
”It’s a big opportunity for some of us as one doesn’t get the chance to play a top club like Atletico Madrid all the time,” Ojo told CSN.
“I hope to be part of the team that will play the game. It will be a big one and I expect the fans to come out in large numbers to watch the game.”
Ojo was part of the Home Eagles team that came second at the African Nations Championship early in the year in Morocco.
He was named in the team of the tournament alongside centre-back Stephen Eze who has already linked up with Bulgarian club, Locomotiv Plovdiv.
