Rio 2016: Nigeria Set for Colombia Test

Nigeria’s national under-23 team will tonight take on Colombia in their final Group B match at the Rio Olympics.

The Dream Team have already secured top spot in the group, and team coach, Samson Siasia has hinted that he will rest some of his key players to keep them fresh for the quarter finals.

The Colombians will join Nigeria in the last eight if they win at the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paolo, but any other result will open the door for Sweden or Japan, who meet in the group’s other match in Bahia.

Siasia has charged his squad players to use the opportunity to justify their place in the team.

The match kicks off at 11pm Nigerian time.
