VIDEO: Nigeria 5 – 4 Japan (Aug-05-2016) Men’s Olympic Football Highlights


Japan made a losing start to their Men’s Olympic Football Tournament campaign on Thursday (local time) as four goals from Oghenekaro Etebo condemned the reigning AFC U23 champions to a slender 5-4 defeat at the hands of Nigeria.

Early goals from Shinzo Koroki, Takumi Minamino had kept Japan in contention before Nigeria – with Etebo seemingly at the heart of everything – moved out of sight in the second period despite Takuma Osano and Musashi Suzuki’s late efforts for Japan.

The result leaves head coach Makoto Teguramori’s side rooted to the foot of Group B and needing to recover quickly ahead of Sunday’s encounter with Colombia who had earlier drawn 1-1 with Sweden.
