The Nigerian men’s soccer team is off to a strong start after a wild few days of travel to the Olympic games in Rio.
The team was stranded in Atlanta for days after a travel mix-up. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Delta Airlines finally provided the team with a charter plane to Rio Friday, free of charge.
Despite a chaotic start, the team emerged victorious. They faced Japan just hours after landing and beat them 4-5. On Sunday, they beat Sweden 1-0.
Nigeria’s next game will be held in São Paulo. According to Sports Illustrated, the International Olympic Committee is now in charge of making travel plans.
