President of the Nigeria senate, Olusola Saraki, has hinted that the house will investigate the circumstances behind the country's U-23s' delayed departure to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

The Eagles were initially scheduled to leave their training base in Atlanta, United States of America for Manaus venue of their opening Group B fixture against Japan on Monday but only jetted in for the game few hours before kick off due to lack of funds.

"Congratulations to the #Dream Team for the 5-4 win against Japan#Rio 2016. #Thank you Delta for making it possible for them to make the match," Saraki wrote on his Twitter handle on Friday.

"Senate Committee on sports chaired by Senator Obinnna Ogba will look into the embarrassing situation that happened to the Dream Team V1.

"When minister of finance appeared in the senate three weeks ago, we raised the issue and she assured funds were released."

The Samson Siasia led-side who top their group with three points will take on Sweden in their second game in the men's football event on Sunday.
Sweden and Colombia battled to a 2-2 draw in the group's other game.

  1. Nothing done in country is with sincerity. Where did the fund released for the team went to? Had they lost the match, everybody would have been looking for whom to blame. This shame a of a country.

    No surprises here, it's just Nigerian way. Come next month, there'll be another probe of those that probed what happened between Atlanta and Brazil trip. Thanks anyway for your perpetual probes that ueilds nothing in the end. We common Nigerians are inspired. It can only get worst. In any case, if you add all these probes to our foreign reserve, World Bank will be tempted to borrow from us. Just a thought
