Captain Mikel Obi’s sterling performance secured the victory for the Dream Team.

Sadiq Umar scored the first goal for Nigeria from a Mikel pass in the 34th minute before Umar Aminu doubled the lead in the 49th minute with a rebound, after Mikel Obi was denied a goal from his 20 yard effort.

Honduras later scored in the 71st and 86th minutes, both from an header.
