Olympics: Dream team vi qualifies for semi-final, to play Germany


Nigeria’s Dream Team vi has set up a semi-final clash with Germany, courtesy of their 2-0 victory over Denmark in Salvador, Brazil on Saturday in the quarterfinal.

Goals from skipper, John Mikel Obi and Aminu Umar gave the win to the Samson Siasia-led team.

Mikel tapped in a low cross cross from Imoh Ezekiel in the 15th minute of the tie.

Goalkeeper Emmanuel Daniel, arguably the man-of-the match, made several point blank saves to keep Nigeria in the lead as the first half winds down.

The Nigerian side renewed their vigour in search of a second goal.

They were however rewarded for their effort as Umar increased the tally through a header.

Nigeria will battle Germany in the semi-finals at the Corinthians Arena in Sao Paulo on Wednesday.

Germany dispatched Portugal by 4-0.
