No problems this time: Super Eagles fly into Brazil

A year ago, Nigeria arrived three days late for the Confederations Cup in Brazil amid chaos, as player strike over bonuses caused delays and threatened to derail their ambitions.

This year, all is calm. The African champions Nigeria touched down as scheduled in Sao Paulo on Tuesday night ahead of the World Cup.

The Stephen Keshi-led Super Eagles flew into Brazil from their USA camp, and later proceeded through the busy Sau Paulo 100km north to their World Cup base in the city of Campinas.

The Nigerians – who drew two and lost one of their three pre-World Cup friendlies across London [UK], Philadelphia and Florida [us] –  are in Group F, drawn against two-time champions Argentina, Iran as well as Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Participating in their fifth FIFA World Cup, the West Africans will play Iran in their opening game iin Curitiba on Monday, June 16.
