Etebo says Nigeria must take more chances against Sweden

Etebo-Dream Team VI-Nigeria-U23

Nigeria striker Oghenekaro Etebo has said they must convert their chances when they face Sweden in their second group game of the ongoing Olympic Games.

The Dream Team, as the Nigerian side is called, are up against their Swedish counterparts later tonight and despite scoring five goals in their first game in which he scored four of those, Etebo believes they must keep their conversion rate high.

“I’m not that perfect but I believe, like my coach says, once you get a chance, it’s better you convert it because you don’t know when you’re going to get another one,” he said. “I’m not a kind of special striker or fantastic goalscorer, but it’s better to be at the right place at the right time to score good goals,” Etebo told

The Feirense of Portugal forward broke a 44-year old record with his four goals against Japan on Friday, and will be hoping to make a similar impact later tonight.

A win for Nigeria will almost certainly guarantee them a place in the next round of the competition.
