The Super Eagles as they are known at home gave Africa its first gold medal in the soccer tournament at the Atlanta games in 1996. They beat Argentina in the final after knocking out the Brazilians in the semi-finals.Yet the Nigerians were not supposed to compete in the Olympics. They had been suspended from international competitions for having refused to take part in the African national championships. Fortunately they were granted an amnesty just before the games.This team, built around two stars, Okocha and Kanu, managed to beat the two Latin American countries even though the latter had brought many international football stars to Georgia in the hope of winning the gold medal.
