Captain of the Nigeria Under-23s John Obi Mikel says he expect Nigeria’s opponent Germany to play a style similar to that of Sweden and Denmark, when Nigeria trade tackles against them in the semi-finals of the male football event of Rio 2016 Olympics.
Nigeria defeated Sweden 1-0 in their second group game before seeing off Denmark 2-0 in the quater-finals, the Chelsea star is tipping tomorrow’s semi final opponents to play like their fellow European counterparts.
He however warned his teammates to be on the alert against the Germans and do exactly as they have been told by coach Samson Siasia, who he terms as amazing when it comes to tactics.
“Maybe they will be a bit similar to the Swedish or Danish teams we faced. We have to make sure we’re ready. We have to make sure we play well and hopefully we do exactly what coach Samson Siasia asks us to do”
“He’s been absolutely amazing with his tactics and with the he wants us to play”.
