Nigeria captain Mikel Obi has blamed his side's Rio 2016 men's football event semi-final defeat to Germany on "luck".
The Germans absolutely outclassed the Olympic Eagles on Wednesday in winning 2-0 as they set up a final with hosts Brazil.
But Mikel will not accept the Germans' clear superiority.
"We gave everything last night but luck wasn't on our side," the Chelsea star tweeted on Thursday.
"We will keep going for bronze, to make Nigeria proud."
Nigeria play Honduras for the bronze medal on Saturday, before Brazil and Germany face off for gold.
