Nigerian U23 Fights On, Optimistic Against All Odds

The Nigerian U23 has gone so far in the Olympics this time, beyond predictions and have proved alot of Odds wrong even when most Nigerians have a negative point of view towards the team, it has not stopped the from trying their best at the competition.

Down at Nigeria our correspondent reports that most Nigerians didn't believe in the team and some have never watched the live performance of their U23, "I didn't believe they could go so far, so I didn't care to watch till I heard that they are in the Semi Finals" says one of the Nigerians and many have the view that the team will fail this time, though they say they will try and watch it, they don't expect much.

The German U23 have scored a total of 19 goals in this tournament having played four matches only, Scored 10 against Fiji. That's some awesome performance and will still be hoping to bring down the Nigerians in order to meet the finals. Though they seem Favourites in this fixture, it is advisable for them to take precautions as the Nigerians won't be there to joke, having Oghenekaro Etebo, though not in top form might be dangerous for them.

The German U23 finished of Portugal with ease in their last fixture scoring 4 goal to Nil. Then the question  comes, can Nigeria hold up against this goal hungry Germans. The Nigerian defence has had its lapses as some defensive errors had lead to their conceding, another question Comes what has the coach done to tighten the defence. This and more will be observed as the Nigerian U23 will face this team in just an hour.
