Chattered flight to lift Super Eagles for Tanzania trips

19 August 2015, 16:34Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The Super Eagles will make the trip to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and back to Nigeria on a chattered flight, as they aim to book a ticket from the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier group.

The Super Eagles take on Tanzania in Dar es Salaam on Saturday, September 5, and the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) says it has tidied up all arrangements surrounding the game.

Already, the NFF has concluded agreement with a leading Nigeria airline to fly the team into Dar es Salaam and back to Nigeria, with departure to be from the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja and the return set for the Port Harcourt International Airport.

NFF officials confirmed on Wednesday that the chartered aircraft will convey the delegation into Dar es Salaam on the eve of the match, as Tanzania is a high altitude zone.

The delegation will depart Dar es Salaam immediately after the match, and fly into Port Harcourt, where the Super Eagles have an international friendly against the Mena of Niger on Tuesday, September 8.

Arrangements for the hotel where the Super Eagles will stay in Dar es Salaam have also been finalized, according to NFF General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi.

Nigeria and Egypt have three points each from the Matchday 1 of the qualification series to be on top of Group G, though the Pharaohs have scored one more goal and are slightly ahead following their 3-0 defeat of Tanzania in Cairo.

On the same weekend, the Pharaohs will travel to Ndjamena to confront the Les Sao of Chad.
