Rio 2016; Nigerian Dream Team All Set For Brazil After Their Delay In Atlanta. (Photos)

Nigeria's Olympic Dream team are all set for Brazil after their delay in Atlanta because of a problem with the payment for a flight to Rio. The football team are expected to arrive in Brazil less than 36 hours before their opening match.

The squad remained on American soil on Wednesday night, and were due to board a flight that would land in the western Brazilian city of Manaus with just hours to spare ahead of their Group B clash with Japan on Thursday (9 p.m. ET).

Their delay, according to multiple reports from journalists following the team, was caused by a payment mix-up between the Nigerian sports ministry and a charter airline company.

Nigeria’s players had initially thought they would be leaving Atlanta on Wednesday morning. However, when they boarded a flight that their sports ministry had booked with a charter company it was not large enough to carry all of the players, so they disembarked.
