Alongside the players was Atletico boss Diego Simeone, and he was warmly given a hospitable welcome by fans at the airport when they all landed.
Simeone’s side affirmed their second-place finish on the Spanish top flight log in the day of the LaLiga following a 2-2 draw with Eibar at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Los Rojiblancos also emerged winners in the Europa League after a far-reaching 3-0 triumph over Marseille with Antoine Griezmann, who is on National obligation getting ready for the FIFA World Cup with his French colleagues, getting a brace at the Europa League final.
Critics who thought this would be a much debilitated Atletico de Madrid side are mistaken, as it is an exceptionally solid looking lineup going upward against the home-Super Eagles of Nigeria.
