Nigeria's U-23 football team put in a good effort to defeat Japan in their opening game at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Nigeria's outing could not have gotten any more weird, after a mix-up with the country's national anthem.
Various issues such as the Zika virus, Russia's doping scandal and the poor level of preparedness of the Nigerian team have foreshadowed this prestigious event.
Despite all these, Nigeria will be looking at winning as much gold medals as possible.
The country will be participating in sporting events such as swimming, Men's football, basketball and others.
The opening ceremony of the Olympics took place on the late evening of Friday, August 5, 2016.
