First, i would like to say Congratulations to Nigeria’s DreamTeam on their 5-4 win over Japan. It was a hot one.
Nigeria’s men’s soccer team made an extraordinary start to its Olympic campaign, beating Japan 5-4 in Manaus on Thursday just hours after landing in Brazil following a travel mix-up.
The Nigerian squad eventually landed in Manaus at 2:19 p.m. on Thursday afternoon, with the game against Japan beginning at 9 p.m.
However, despite what would seem to be the worst kind of preparation, Nigeria produced an inspired display to sink Japan. The contest was evenly matched in the opening stages, with honors remaining even following a frantic opening burst that produced four goals in 10 minutes.
It was a day for Oghenekaro Etebo who had 4 goals to his credit. #Congrats Naija. See full highlight below…..
