Help me get out of my $650 bet on Nigeria to win WorldCup :)

Don't ask, but somehow I managed to bet $650 on Nigeria to win the WC at 500 to 1

Since placing the bet the odds have gone down to about 250.

Obviously I have close to no hope of them winning it all.

What is my play now to get out of this bet somewhat reasonable? (I donīt have access to any bet-lay markets.)

Was looking good up until the last 10 minutes or so. If it's any consolation I was in a similar situation.

Heartbreaking ending

I won half of my investment back, but honestly I could see Nigeria beating France on a good day. Didnīt feel like it would be a miracle. But, oh well...
