The Dream Team VI saved Nigeria the embarrassment of having to leave the Rio 2016 Olympics without a medal after beating Honduras in their third place match to win Bronze.

Two goals from Sadiq Umar and one from Aminu Umar ensured that Nigeria established an early lead that snuffed off the late onslaught by Honduras to get back in the game.

With Nigeria comfortably 3-0 up after 70 minutes, it looked like a sure bet win, but Antony Lozano’s headed goal in the 71st minute inspired a comeback. Then Marcelo Pereira headed in a 2nd in the 86th minuted and the game became nervy.

However, the late substitutions form Nigeria took away the sting from Honduras and the time wasted in the changes helped the Dream Team hold on to the win

It is a victory that meant a lot to a team who went through so much ordeal to participate at the Olympics. The Dream Team drew worldwide sympathy after having to travel to Manaus, just six hours to their first game against Japan and still ended up winning the game by 5-4.
