Super Eagles of Nigeria are to arrive in Brazil's Manaus city hours before their match against Japan at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
They are due to leave Atlanta in the US at around 11:00 GMT to fly for seven hours and then start the match at 01:00 GMT.
The squad was stuck in the US because the plane was too small for them. They had previously had a dispute over payment, which had been sorted out. The Nigerian sports ministry insisted a new payment had been made to the airline, BBC Sports reports.
