Team Nigeria for the Rio Olympics have finally departed their training base for Brazil.
They left Atlanta on Thursday after failing four times to depart. According to Guardian, they left on a chartered flight. The Nigerian Sports ministry has confirmed their departure for Manaus in a chartered flight.

It was a difficult challenge that has finally been overcome by the officials and team. The first chartered flight was too small.

The Coach Samson Siasia has stressed the flight delay will no way affect the team's performance at the Olympics.

Japan, Sweden and Colombia are in the same group with Nigeria.They will play against Japan on Thursday. With a gold medal 20years ago,Nigeria might just be lucky again and so much preparation and confidence.
