#Rio2016: Germany Ends Nigeria’s Dream Team Football Gold Medal Hope

Lukas Klostermann & Nils Petersen were on target as Germany beat Nigeria 2-0 on Wednesday night to set up a Men’s final tie against Brazil.

The Germans got the winning edge over the Nigerians with an early goal from Lukas Klostermann.

Efforts by Coach Samson Siasia’s boys to level the score were unsuccessful as the first half ended 1 – 0.

The Nigerians seemed more prepared to fight for the finals ticket in the second half as they came out stronger than they were earlier.

However, Germany’s Nils Petersen truncated the hope of the Dream Team with his 89th minute goal.

The two goals came in each half.

The Germans would contend for the championship title with host country, Brazil who beat Honduras 6 – 0.
