Argentina won back-to-back Olympic soccer Golds when they beat Nigeria 1-0 in Saturday’s final in the Beijing Olympics 2008. Argentina won the gold in Athens 2004 games also.
Angel Di Maria broke clear of the Nigeria defence and clipped the ball over Ambruse Vanzekin in the 58th minute. The Argentines survived a torrid half hour of Nigerian pressure to cling on for victory.
The mid-day showdown at the Bird’s Nest was a repeat of the 1996 final, which Nigeria won 3-2 to become the first African team to win the tournament.
