Nigeria’s Dream Team VI will face Denmark in the quarter final of the Rio Olympics men’s football event in Salvador today, August 13, but they may be without their star player Oghenekaro Etebo.
This follows report that the attacking midfielder may not be in action against the Scandinavians due to a hamstring injury he sustained against Colombia in the team’s last outing.
A scan on Thursday, August 11, confirmed that Etebo has torn a muscle and may miss today’s game and the rest of the tournament should Nigeria make it into the next round.
Many had questioned Siasia’s decision to play the CD Feirense player in the match versus Colombia as the team’s had secured top spot in Group B, but the 42-year-old will be looking to put smiles back on the faces of Nigerians when his team come up against Denmark tonight.
Kick-off time is 8pm (Nigerian Time)
