The Olympic football team of Nigeria kicked off their campaign on a high note after claiming a close 5-4 victory over Japan at their opening match.
Despite the fact that the game witnessed some thrilling display from Nigerian stars, especially from right winger rocking jersey number 8, Oghenekaro Etebo who scored 4 goals for the match ball.. The Nigerian players were left stunned when a wrong national anthem was played for the Nigerian team.

Can someone tell the @Rio2016_en@Olympics organisers in Manaus to get the right anthem for Nigeria, please? The mess just goes on! ?
The organisers have since apologized many Nigerian social media users seems to take it as an insult that a well organized soccer festival like the Olympics won’t have the correct anthem of any team.. What if they were receiving medal and they start playing another man’s country anthem..hian!!
