#Rio2016: John Mikel Obi scores as Nigeria demolish Denmark 2-0. To play Germany in semi-final (photos)

Nigeria's Under 23 team at the Rio 2016 Olympics have qualified to the Semi-finals of the tournament and stand a high chance of winning a medal after defeating Denmark 2-0.

Team captain John Mikel Obi continued his sensational display at the tournament with a man of the match performance and scored Nigeria's first goal in the 16th minute after a cutback pass by Imoh Ezekiel.
 

In the 27th minute, Nigeria's goalkeeper Emmanuel Daniel saved from point-blank range as Denmark went in search of an equalising goal. 

Amuzie's  shot was shoved off for a corner by the Denmark goalkeeper and the resulting corner kick taken by Mikel Obi was put in the net by Aminu Umar in the 59th minute.

Denmark looked clueless and found it hard to penetrate Nigeria's defence and coach Samson Siasia will be proud to have kept a clean sheet as the African powerhouse qualified for the Semi-final stage.

Nigeria will now play Germany in the semifinal of Rio 2016.
