First ever African country to win all medals in Olympic football.

on

After beating Honduras 3-2 to win the Bronze medal (their only medal of the tournament mind you), Nigeria has claimed the record of being the first and only African country to win all medals in Olympic football history.

Other Olympic football medals won are: Gold after winning 3-2 against a Hernan Crespo led Argentina in Atlanta 1996, and losing by a lone goal to the same country, this time led by Lionel Messi in Beijing 2008, to settle for the Silver medal.

The only other African countries that have come close to his feat are Cameroun (Gold, Sydney 2000) and Ghana (Bronze, Barcelona 1992)
