Rio Olympics: Nigeria Beat Honduras to Olympic Bronze (Photos)

Nigeria Beat Honduras 3-2 to Olympic Bronze.

Nigeria claimed men’s football bronze at the Rio Olympics with an entertaining 3-2 win over Honduras in Belo Horizonte on Saturday to deny the Central Americans their first ever Olympic medal.

Two goals from Roma striker Sadiq Umar and namesake Aminu Umar’s fine finish early in the second-half put Nigeria 3-0 up.

Honduras battled until the end, though, as Anthony Lozano and Marcelo Pereira headed home in the final 20 minutes to set up a nervy finish for the 1996 gold medal winners.
