Nigeria's Dream Team V has marched into the final qualifying tournament for the 2012 London Olympics after it beat Tanzania 3-0 in Benin City Sunday.

Nigeria thus qualified for the next stage of the competition on a 3-1 aggregate after she lost the first leg match in Tanzania a fortnight ago.

Warri Wolves' striker Ekigho Ehiosun opened scoring for Nigeria as early as the third minute, before Vietnam-based striker, Gani Oseni, doubled the home team's advantage. Ahmed Musa made it 3-0 in the dying moments of the match.

Tanzania had beaten mighty Cameroon in the previous round of the qualifiers. Next week Saturday, the Dream Team V will host arch-rival, Ghana, in a 2011 All Africa Games qualifier
