As Nigerians await the semi- finals, the Dream Team have vowed not to lose their game.

Chelsea star player, John Obi Mike, captain of the team says he does not want to return to Chelsea, his club, without an Olympic Games gold medal.


He vowed to delay his return to his English Premier League side after helping Nigeria to reach men’s football semi-final against Germany in Sao Paulo on Wednesday. He added that he was determined to have the Games gold to declare in his luggage.


”I hope to go back to Chelsea as the Olympic champion. That is my aim. I came out here to do my best to help the team with the gold medal. That has always been my objective. It’s my aim and the players all want the same. When you have a group of players all wanting to achieve the same thing, hopefully it will go well at the end”, he said.
