Denmark in the quarter final match.
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu
Dogara, has commended the National-U23 team,
also called The Dream Team, for their 2-0 win
against Denmark in the ongoing Rio Olympic
Games.
This is contained in a statement issued by
Dogara’s Special Adviser on Media and Public
Affairs, Mr Turaki Hassan in Abuja on Sunday.
Dogara said the Nigerian spirit was on display in
the encounter when the Dream Team defeated
Denmark in the quarter final match.
“We pleaded with the team not to boycott the
quarter final match and here we are in the semi-
final.
“We can go all the way and win the gold medal as
was the case in Atlanta 96,” the Speaker said.
“We are about to do it again. I strongly believe we
can do it. I urge all Nigerians to support the Dream
Team with prayers,” he added.
Dogara called on Nigerians to support the team as
they seek to bring glory to the country.
