Nigeria’s Under-23 football team, the Dream Team VI, minutes ago zoomed into the semi-final of the on-going Olympic Games holding in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Samson Siasia-tutored boys dominated the game, with skipper Mikel Obi finding the net from close range in the 16th minute for the curtain raiser.

Umar made victory more certain early in the second half, rising above the Danish defence to powerfully head home a Mikel corner.
