2013 FIFA’s Confederation Cup: Nigeria Last Team To Arrive+Match Schedule

The 2013 Confederations Cup now has its full complement of eight teams after Nigeria belatedly arrived in Brazil on Saturday night, hours after the start of the tournament.
The delay means that coach Stephen Keshi has barely 36 hours to prepare his side for their Group B opener against Oceania minnows Tahiti on Monday.
The squad are scheduled to have their first training session in Brazil later on Sunday.
The African champions had been due to arrive on Thursday, but a dispute with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) over bonus payments meant the squad missed their initial scheduled flights.
The players were angry that they were only offered a bonus of $2,500 (1,873 euros) for their 1-1 draw with Namibia in World Cup qualifying on Wednesday.
However, despite ongoing discord, the squad finally arrived at their Belo Horizonte hotel at around 03:00 local time (06:00GMT) on Sunday, having flown in from Windhoek in Namibia via Johannesburg and Sao Paulo.
The Nigeria Football Federation’s general secretary Musa Amadu said in a statement: “We are shocked, like every Nigerian, at the attitude of the players.
“It is incomprehensible because the NFF president Aminu Maigari and myself sat down with the management of the Super Eagles, including coach Stephen Keshi, to explain why we had to slash the bonus and other measures taken as a result of our financial constraints.”
