Nigerian International Killed in a Car Crash.

Right now, there is turmoil in Nigeria over elections but when African countries play each other or get to the World Cup, I tend to cheer for the Super Eagles.
"Nigeria international and Skoda Xanthi defender Olubayo Adefemi has died in a car accident, aged 25."

 This 2nd story tells us:
"Olubayo won a silver medal at the Holland 2005 World Youth Championship under Siasia. Three years later he was part of the Dream Team that won a silver medal at the Beijing Olympics."
 So, he was part of the Olympics team that had some success, surely the team that put up a challenge against Argentina in the final but of course, the Albiceleste were a super team and took the gold medal home. He was currently playing for a team in Greece and was on his way to finalize some wedding plans. Rest in Peace Olubayo Adefemi
