Nigeria beat Senegal 1-0, qualify for Olympics

Invest In Mutual Funds Like A Hero

Nigeria have qualified for the 2016 Rio Olympics after defeating hosts Senegal in the semi-finals of the 2015 Africa U23 Championship.

Etebo Oghenekaro’s penalty in the 75th minute was all the Dream Team VI needed to ease past the hosts after Ousseynou Thioune had handled the ball in his penalty area to prevent Eyo Ebong from scoring.

Ibrahima Keita failed to put his side ahead in the first half after seeing his penalty saved by man of the match, Emmanuel Daniel, who guessed the right way.

With this victory, the Dream Team will now face the winner between Algeria and South Africa for the 2015 Africa U23 title with the 2016 Olympics men’s football event ticket in their kitty.
