The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is set to storm Johannesburg, South Africa with a delegation of 98 people aboard a chartered aircraft, according to report by footballlive.ng.
The report indicates that officials of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have started collating names of everyone who is likely to board the flight to the Rainbow Nation, on Thursday evening.
However, in contrast with initial reports that the aircraft will take off from the Delta State capital, Asaba, where the Eagles are camped, it was gathered that flight will take off from nearby Benin City.
Officials explained that the airport in Benin City has better facilities and a bigger side to ensure a safe take off for the Max Air chartered flight, which is expected to bear 98 people directly to Johannesburg.
The same aircraft will then ferry the delegation back home immediately after the match on Saturday, as the Eagles will quickly return to Asaba to prepare for an international friendly against Uganda billed for Tuesday.
