Completesportsnigeria.com's Adeboye Amosu analyzes the individual performances of Nigeria's Olympic team, the Dream Team players in their 2-0 quarter-final win over Denmark in the men's football tournament of Rio 2016 Olympic Games on Saturday, August 13.
Emmanuel Daniel 8/10
Proved his class with four breathtaking saves in the encounter. The Enugu Rangers goalkeeper is one of the main reasons Nigeria are still gunning for the football gold of the Rio 2016 men's football tournament.
Stanley Amuzie 7/10
An efficient performance from the left-back. Joined the attack at will, and was never found wanting in his defensive duties.
William Troost- Ekong 7/10
Put up his best performance in the competition. The centre-back put up a solid display curtailing all efforts by the Danes to hit the back of the net in the game.
Sincere Seth 6/10
Combined well with Troost-Ekong at the heart of the defence. He was however booked for a rash tackle in the first half.
Shehu Abdullahi 7/10
Performed excellently well on his return to the side after missing the last game through injury. Shehu was a delight going forward and was superb at the back.
Usman Muhammed 6/10
Not really a commanding performance from the combative midfielder. He gave the ball away a couple of times and was booked by the centre referee in the first half. But still did enough to help his side reach the semi-finals.
Azubuike Okechukwu 6/10
The assistant captain put up a good showing in the match. He was full of running and also help out in the defence. But he was yellow carded in the match – his second consecutive match booking, and will miss the semi-final match against Germany.
John Obi Mikel 8/10
The skipper scored Nigeria's opening goal and put up an efficient display in the quater-final fixture.

Aminu Umar 6/10
The forward didn't make much impact in the game though he scored the decisive second goal.
Ezekiel Imoh 8/10
Was excellent as usual. Ezekiel provided the assist for Nigeria's opening goal and proved a handful for the Danes for most of the game.
Sadiq Umar 6/10
Not at his best in the game. He was substituted six minutes from time.
Ndifreke Udo 3/10
Handed a cameo appearance, the defender did enough to help his side held on to their lead.
Junior Ajayi 2/10
Played his first game of the competition and missed the opportunity of adding to his side's lead late on.
