“I’M PROUD OF THIS TEAM” – READ MIKEL’S THOUGHTS ON DREAM TEAM VI

Captain John Obi Mikel has lauded Nigeria U23 team for their stirring showing at the Rio Olympic Games.

The Dream Team VI caged Sweden 1-0 on Sunday to qualify for the quarterfinal of the men’s football event having survived the Japanese scare in their 5-4 victory at the Arena Amazonia, Manaus.

Samson Siasia’s side face Colombia who are in dire need of victory in their final Group B game on Wednesday – with the result inconsequential for the African 23 kings who have already emerged as group winners.

Fuelled by the team’s imposing display in Brazil, the Chelsea star believes the future is bright for Nigeria football.

“Proud of our young team, excited for the future,” Obi tweeted.

With coach Samson Siasia revealing he would rest some key members of the team ahead their quarterfinal game billed for Fonte Nova Arena , the Dream Team VI skipper could watch from the stands against Los Cafeteros.

Having missed out of the London 2012 Olympics, Siasia’s wards are eager to win the Olympic gold medal 20 years after the country’s conquest at the Atlanta 96 games.
