Mikel Obi Scores First Leading Nigeria Into Semi Finals

The Nigerian U23 team have been particularly great at the Olympics going all the way up to the to the Semi Finals beating Denmark yesterday 2 goals to Nil, Mikel  Obi finding the net just 15 minutes into the first 45 minutes.
Mikel has also been a source of inspiration for the team as the captain and the the brain work of the team.

Mikel Obi who has had less than 10 goals through out his carrier due to his lack of attacking spirit made a mark yesterday as the team needed some motivation, it was a good goal by the midfielder but who knows when next he will find the net again as scoring in his calender is always a miracle. The Game ended 1-0 in the first 45 as the Mikel Obi goal was just enough for the Denmark to take in,
The the second second half was just as the first half as the Nigerian U23 added another one to complete their gifts for the Denmark U23.

The Nigerian U23 will be heading straight to Germany for the Semi Finals clash and I don't think it will be any easy for the Nigerian side as the Germans have made their mark on any team they have met in the competition. Yesterday the German U23 proceeded to the Semi Finals beating Portugal 4 goals to Nil,  a score that would have been more if the German side made good use of all their chances.

I will say at this point that the Nigerian U23 has done much and have gone beyond expectations but from now on, it's gonna be all tough opposition and if Nigeria is to win, they will have to go through the German U23 and eventually Brazil U23 at the finals, it's not going to  be easy but the Nigerian U23 team should not also be underrated.
