Ademola Olajire, Director of Communications of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), disclosed in a statement that the team landed in Casablanca on Monday.
“They have already moved to Morocco’s administrative capital, Rabat where the team will camp for seven days before their opening Group C match against South Africa’s Banyana Banyana,” he said.
