Etebo_OghenekaroCongratulations are in order for Nigeria’s U23 Dream Team IV, with a win, on Wednesday that seals the deal for their entry into the Rio 2016 Olympic Qualifiers.

The game of Nigeria vs Senegal was the Flying Eagles last opportunity to gain an Olympic spot and entry into the finals of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2015. Senegal’s Lions of Teranga were the top seed, but despite their competitive entry into the game the final score at the 95′ minute was Nigeria 1 and Senegal 0.

Etebo Oghenekaro’s strike in the 76th minute was the game changer.
