The Nigeria Olympic football team are still stranded in the United States of America and their situation has now gotten worse as the players are now waiting in their hotel lobby after their check-out time reached without any word on how or when they will travel to Brazil, fcnaija.com can confirm.
There have been delays in the team’s travel to Brazil for the Olympic Games and it looks like the delay will continue, with the players still unsure of travel plans as at 7pm Nigerian time.
They were supposed to travel to Brazil last Friday, but lack of proper travel plans meant it was shifted to Monday, then Tuesday, and now Wednesday and even at that, the team is yet to get any concrete information on when they will leave.
Already, some of the players have threatened to return to their clubs if the issues are not sorted today.
They play Japan in their opening fixture 2am Nigerian time on Friday, and just over 24 hours to the game, the team remains stranded.
