The Nigeria U-23 team will most likely depart the shores of Nigeria in the early hours of Monday possibly late Sunday night for South Korea where they will be participating in a pre Olympic tournament in Suwon.

Owngoalnigeria.com gathered from top sources in the team’s camp that they will most likely arrive Suwon few hours before their first game against host South Korea on Tuesday June 2nd at the Suwon World cup stadium.

Nigeria will however have a two day rest before their second game against Honduras on June 4 at the Goyang Stadium in Goyang, north of Seoul before rounding up the tournament with a tie against Denmark two days later at the Bucheon Stadium in Bucheon,west of Seoul.

The tournament is meant to prepare the Nigeria U-23s, the dream team as they fondly called for the male football event at the Olympic games in Rio where they are in group B with Colombia,Japan and Sweden.
