WATCH: Mikel leads Nigeria to Olympics semi-finals

The Chelsea midfielder scored one and got an assist as he helped Dream Team VI beat Denmark 2-0 in Salvador

Nigeria U23 breezed into the Rio Olympics semi-finals with a 2-0 win over Denmark and one man in particular stole the show.

John Obi Mikel wasted little time in showing why Dream Team VI are strong contenders for the gold medal with his 15th minute strike after turning in a pass from impressive Ezekiel Imoh.

The Chelsea star went one better in the second half by providing the assist for Aminu Umar’s winner in the 59th minute.
