Rio 2016 Olympics: Dream Team VI defeat Sweden, qualify for quarter-finals

Nigeria are through to the quarter-finals of the men’s football event at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, after a 1-0 win over Sweden on Monday morning.
Samson Siasia’s team dominated the match, but could only convert one of their many chances.

AS Roma forward, Sadiq Umar, scored the winner in the first half, heading home a cross from Stanley Amuzie.




The Dream Team VI look refreshed in their second game, having recovered from the travel issues before their opener against Japan, which they edged 5-4 in Manaus.

Nigeria now have six points and top Group B, ahead of their last group game against Colombia.
