The officials were expected to arrive in the Asian country on Monday but had difficulty getting their visas. Having resolved the issues, the officials departed Nigeria through the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport on Wednesday, according to Goal.com.
The officers involved are Dayo Enebi Achor [Team Administrator], Toyin Ibitoye [Media Officer], Dr Ibrahim Gyaran [Team Doctor], Christopher Nnadozie [Physiotherapist] and Chidi Ngoka [Equipment Manager].
Gernot Rohr’s men will hope for a positive result against the six-time world champions, who played out a 1-1 draw against Senegal on Thursday. The Super Eagles lost 3-0 in their last meeting with the South Americans in 2003 in Abuja.
