Nigeria's U-23 national team

Nigeria’s U-23 national team have arrived Korea for the 2016 Suwon Invitational Football Tournament.

The team coached by Samson Siasia arrived the Korean capital on Tuesday aboard Ethiopian Airline  as confirmed by the official Twitter handle of the Nigeria Football Federation.

The team departed Abuja, Nigeria, on Monday for the nearly 18 hours flight to Seoul.

The delegation of 19 players and 10 officials was led by NFF Executive Committee member and Chairman of the NFF Media and Publicity Committee, Suleiman Yahaya-Kwande.

The U-23 Eagles will confront South Korea, Honduras and Denmark at the tournament.

The Suwon invitational tournament holds from Thursday, 2 June to Monday, 6 June with the Nigeria U-23 side without defender Segun Oduduwa who was ruled out of the tournament after sustaining an injury during training.

Siasia’s team had missed the Toulon tournament, won by England, which was geared to prepare Rio Olympics-bound teams in the men’s football tournament.
