Nigeria’s Olympic Eagles’ dreams of winning the men’s football gold medal here at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games were ended on Wednesday after a two-nil defeat to Germany at the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo.
Lukas Kostermann scored the first goal of the contest early in the first half, while Nils Pietersen finished off the African Under-twenty-three champions late on. Germany will face hosts Brazil on Saturday for the gold medal, while Nigeria and Honduras battle for bronze.
