Goodluck Jonathan celebrates Nigeria's Dream Team

Nigeria’s Dream Team won bronze after much struggle at the 2016 Rio Olympics

– Former President Goodluck Jonathan joined other Nigerians to celebrate the team expressing confidence in the players

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has taken to his Facebook wall to celebrate Nigeria’s Dream team for finally making Nigeria proud at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Nigeria returned from the tunnel blazing from all cylinders and barely four minutes into the second half, Aminu Umar netted a second goal after striker, Sadiq Umar, opened the scoring for the team.

Sadiq Umar extended Nigeria’s lead into three seven minutes later before Anthony Lozano pulled one back for Honduras in the 71st minute.

Jonathan joined Nigerians to celebrate the team for struggling to get bronze despite the challenges the team and other Nigerian athletes faced at the tournament.

I celebrate the Dream Team. You proved your mettle under difficult circumstances.

“I always knew you could do it and even better. Bravo,” Jonathan said.
