Nigeria began their Olympic campaign with an entertaining 5-4 win over Japan and will be keen to continue their momentum when they face Sweden on Sunday. Despite arriving in Brazil just six hours prior to kick-off, the Super Eagles remained focused and dispatched the Asian U23 champions, in a game that saw both teams struggle defensively.
Samson Siasia's side had Oghenekaro Etebo to thank after the midfielder scored four of Nigeria's five goals. They will be hoping to tighten up at the back when they face Sweden on Sunday, after conceding four goals against Japan. Nigeria won their only gold medal 20 years ago at Atlanta 1996, following which they have managed just one silver medal, which was at Beijing 2008.
Sweden, meanwhile, played out a 2-2 draw against Colombia in their opening encounter and sit in the second place on the table two points behind Nigeria. The Swedes are only making their second appearance, with their previous outing coming in the 1992 games in Barcelona when they were knocked out in the quarter-finals.
It is the first time Nigeria and Sweden are meeting in the Olympics, but the Swedes hold an advantage in the head-to-head record between the two nations.
