#Rio2016 Olympics: Mikel Obi Scores As Nigeria Beat Denmark To Reach Semi-finals
Nigeria’s U-23 team defeated Denmark 2-0, to qualify for the semi-final of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil on Saturday evening.
The captain of the Dream Team VI, Mikel John Obi, opened the scoring early in the first half, following superb wing play from Imoh Ezekiel.
Aminu Umar then grabbed a second for the Dream Team VI 14 minutes into the second half to keep Samson Siasia’s dream of leading the team to Olympics glory alive.
The Nigerian team will now take on an in-form Germany team in the semi-final of the competition.
