Two trophies in a week! Torres leaves Atletico Madrid in style

Fernando Torres leaves Atletico with two trophies in a week

Madrid, May 23: Fernando Torres scored as Atletico Madrid ran out 3-2 winners in a friendly against Nigeria B, earning the striker his second trophy in seven days.

Club icon Torres won the first major honour of his Atletico career with the 3-0 Europa League final defeat of Marseille in Lyon last Wednesday (May 16), before saying farewell to the fans by scoring a double in in his last competitive outing four days later - a 2-2 draw versus Eibar.

And in his final match for Atleti, Torres lifted the GOtv Max Cup at the packed Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.

The former Spain international gave the LaLiga runners-up the lead after Kelechi Nwakali's brilliant opener was cancelled out by Angel Correa.

Usman Mohammed's superb solo strike brought the Super Eagles level but Atleti wrapped up victory thanks to another fine goal from Borja Garces.

Having signed off with more silverware, Torres is expected to complete a switch to MLS or the Chinese Super League.
