Nigeria’s Supersand Eagles have been thrown out of their hotel lodgings in Dubai, UAE. This is coming barely a day after the Samsung Intercontinental Cup ended.
It was gathered that the management of Rayhaan Hotel & Resorts in Dubai, informed the players and officials of the Nigerian team on Sunday that they will have to check out of the facility since the duration of their lodging had expired.
The eight-nation Samsung Beach Soccer Intercontinental Cup finished yesterday, Saturday November 3, with Nigeria finishing fourth but the team’s flight, aboard Etihad Airlines, back home does not leave until 10am tomorrow, Monday 5th.
The beach Eagles squad which consists of 12 players, two coaches and three other officials had packed their luggage in a bus and were heading to Abu Dhabi.
“We have been abandoned here (in Dubai), as the hotel has told us to vacate our rooms because our time of stay has ran out except we want to pay for additional nights. Our flight to Nigeria is tomorrow around 10am (UAE time) and the worst part of it is that since we came here nobody has given us one naira talkless of one dollar.
“We (the beach soccer team) are dying and people are expecting us to give our best under very unpleasant circumstance,” one of the players revealed.
The Nigerian contingent is now planning to move to the Abu Dhabi International Airport where they will spend the next 24 hours before their scheduled flight on Monday.
