Nigeria Super Eagles legends were thrashed by ex-Spanish internationals 8-1 at the Star Sixes tournament in London yesterday.
In the first 10 minutes of the first-half it was obvious Nigeria legends had no chance.
The Spaniards romped to a 4-1 lead in the first half with goals from Lucho Garcia, Mitchel Salgado and Perez Munoz, while Yakubu scored Nigeria’s consolatory goal to take his tally to 4 goals from 4 matches.
In the second-half, Salgado completed his hat trick. It was a wonderful experience for the former Madrid player who has scored 5 goals in 4 games.
Former Super Eagles keeper Peter Rufai
went off injured with a knock and was
replaced by former Northern Ireland keeper Maik Taylor since every team had just one goalkeeper.
Nigeria reached the quarter-finals stage after finishing third in Group B with three points, thereby making it into the knockout stages as one of the two best losers with Germany who amassed four points in Group C.
