Players and officials of Nigeria’s Dream Team are left frustrated after their flight on Wednesday was canceled due to the small size of the plane.
This is the third time the team will be unable to fly to Brazil from Atlanta after flights have suffered cancelation since on Monday.
The Nigerian football team will now arrive Brazil less than eight hours to their first game against Japan in Manaus, if the 7am Thursday flight is not hindered.
The team have now returned to their Hotel Indigo for hopefully one more night.
Media officer Timi Ebikagboro made the announcement on twitter.
“Breaking, trip cancelled, team heading back to hotel, plane too small, FG hires Delta Airline flight for team, flight is 7am tomorrow.”
