Super Eagles of Nigeria who are stuck in Atlanta over flight problems have been told they will soon fly out of Atlanta for Manaus, the venue of Thursday's opening game against Japan in Rio 2010.
The squad was stuck in the US with the charter airline refusing to leave in a dispute over payment. The Nigerian sports ministry insists a new payment has been made to the airline.
With packed bags, players and officials are waiting in their hotel rooms. Some players are worried that lack of rest could have a negative impact against Japan.
