Nigeria beat Sweden 1-0, through to the Olympic quarterfinals

The Nigeria U-23 football team has qualified for the quarterfinals at the ongoing Rio 2016 Olympic Games after a 1-0 victory over Sweden early this morning.

Nigeria's number 13 shirt, Sadiq Umar scored the lone goal of the match at the 39th minute when he nodded home a looping cross from Stanley Amuzie.

Nigeria secured a solid 6 points from their two matches played so far to top the Group B table with six points  ahead of Colombia; who have a game in hand and a point, Sweden are third with one point, while Japan are bottom of the group with no point and a game in hand.

Best of luck to the dream team!
