Former Nigeria star Kanu Nwankwo has sent a congratulatory message to coach Samson Siasia and the Nigeria U23 team for qualifying for the Rio 2016 Olympic Football event following their 1-0 win over Senegal in semi-final of the U23 AFCON on Wednesday in Dakar.
Kanu was the captain of the original Dream Team who won a historic Olympic football gold medal at Atlanta in 1996 and he said he is now looking forward to a great outing at the next Olympics for the team.
“Congrats Siasia and your coaching staff and congrats to the players. Weldone and let’s go to Brazil and do our country proud,” Kanu tweeted.
Warri Wolves forward Etebo Oghenekaro scored the only goal from the penalty spot in the second half to beat Senegal in the U23 AFCON semifinal.
