Dream Team to depart Atlanta for Rio

The Nigeria U23 will depart Atlanta, United States of America for Brazil on Monday, 1st August for the football event of the Rio 2016 Olympics.

The earlier arrangement was for the team to depart for Brazil in batches due to difficulties in securing seats, but the Nigeria Football Federation decided against that movement and is now thinking of either getting them to Brazil as a team or chartering a private plane to take the team directly to Manaus, venue of the first team’s first match.

Nigeria will play its first game against Japan on Thursday inside the Amazônia Arena in Manaus.

Nigeria is placed in Group B alongside Sweden, Colombia and Japan.
