Rio Olympic: Bad news! Germany beat Nigeria to Olympics football final

Nigeria News

Germany on Wednesday defeated Nigeria 2-0 in the semi-finals of the Olympic football event, ending the country’s hope of a repeat of their 1996 feat at the games.

The Germans grabbed their first goal in the 9th minute when a Serge Gnabry’s clever pass into the box fooled the Nigerian defence for Max Meyer to latch on to.

The 20-year-old Schalke 04 attacking midfielder squared the ball for Lukas Klostermann to apply the finish with just a tap-in.

Substitute Niels Petersen grabbed the second goal in the 88th minute to seal victory for the Germans.
