Murcia - Spanish club Almunecar City hosted Indian Super League club Atletico Kolkata in a friendly match on September 11 at Pinatar Arena.

Almunecar put up a good fight in a 5-2 defeat to Atletico Kolkata as Nigerian forward Kalu Uche was the star of the match with four goals. 

Former Orange County FC members Brandon Gomez and Kevin Belmonte were in the starting lineup for Almunecar City. 

"We lost but we played very well," Gomez said. 

"We had about sixty-five percent possession but the difference was Kalu Uche on the other side. He had four chances to score and score all four. We missed too many opportunities."

Uche, 35, has had spells in Spain with Almeria and Espanyol. Uche also represented Nigeria at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and got his name on the score sheet against Greece and South Korea.
