The Dream Team-one handled by Dutchman, Jo Bonfrere, made history by ensuring. Nigeria became the first African nation to win Olympic football gold medal, a feat made at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, USA.
Amuneke played a crucial role for the Nigerian side by scoring the winner after coming on as a substitute in the 3-2 final victory against Argentina.
