Super Eagles arrive Nairobi rejecting lodging arrangements made by host Nation, Kenya.



The Super Eagles have arrived in Nairobi ahead of their crucial World Cup qualifier match with Kenya Wednesday amidst several controversies one of which is that the team rejected the host's accommodation arrangements.

The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations champions arrived at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport early Tuesday and were received by Kenyan football officials.
Their arrival however was not without controversy as the Nigerian side rejected the arranged transport and accommodation offered by Kenya and instead opted to use their own.

The Super Eagles were billed to stay at the 680 hotel located within Nairobi’s central business district but on arrival opted to go for the La Mada hotel located nearer the Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani where the match will take place.

Nigeria had over the weekend played a friendly match against Mexico in Houston, Texas where they drew 2-2. And immediately had to leave for their training camp in Germany, head coach for the Eagles expressed his dissatisfaction with travel arrangement earlier in the week and stated that their performance may be affected because of the long distance journey.
