Nigeria will face Germany in Semi Finals match of the Rio Olympics Men Soccer in Sao Paulo on Wednesday after the Africans Dream team scored in each half to beat Denmark.
John Obi Mikel put Nigeria ahead after 16 minutes when he slotted home from the edge of the six-yard box after Imoh Ezekiel had set him up.
Aminu Umar doubled their lead with a glancing header from a corner after 58 minutes.
In the other quarter finals match, Rampaging German side hammered Portugal 4-0 to set up a semifinal clash with Nigeria.
Davie Selke got the third in the 75th with a goal that was almost identical to the first before substitute Philip Max put the icing on the cake when he ended a sweeping move with a neat finish into the top corner three minutes from time.
Preview of the Match
Germany performance against Portugal can give the chills over any other team coming on, but not the African champions. You don't mess with the Nigerian Dream team; Gold Medal winner in 1996 and silver medalist in 2008.
This Nigerian team looking so similar like that of Nigeria could stun the Germans come Wednesday. Of course, playing the German machine will be a proof of real champions. On a good day, this German team will be hand full... and can tire apart any team without tactical and technical discipline.
