OLYMPICS: Nigeria U-23 still top Group B despite losing to Columbia

Nigeria’s dream team still topped Group B of the Rio 2016 Olympics men’s football event in Sao Paulo, despite 2-0 loss to Colombia on Wednesday.

Nigeria thus advanced to Saturday’s quarter-finals after six points from three matches, having scored six goals and conceded six, with Colombia picking the runners-up spot with five points.

A first-half strike from Captain Teofilo Gutierrez and a second-half penalty kick from Dorlan Pabon ensured the South Americans joined Nigeria in the quarter-finals.

Colombia will play their quarter-final clash in Sao Paulo on Saturday, while Nigeria travels to Salvador for their last eight encounter.
