It is the end of the road for Nigeria’s’ dream team in the Olympic games, as they lost 2-0 to the german team. The Germans let their intentions known early in the 9th minute when Lukas Klostermann scored the first goal.
The Nigerian team made a few efforts, but it was obvious that their attacking prowess was not fully fortified.
Any hope of equalizing was further erased as Nils Petersen made it 2 in the 89th minute. They will play for Bronze, to see if they can salvage something for their budding fans. Can we now go back to blaming the NFL for this backdrop?
Meanwhile, Nigerians react to the loss on twitter:

Germany was the better team. Losing cheap chances was not the way to go for the dream team. Guess they can wake up now #NGRGER
