Sand Eagles: Inhospitable Dubai

 

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, it was learnt.

The eight-nation Samsung Beach Soccer Intercontinental Cup finished on Saturday with Nigeria finishing fourth, but the West Africans' flight, aboard Etihad Airlines, back home does not leave until 10am local time on Monday.

As at the time of writing this report on Sunday, the 12 players, two coaches and three other officials had packed their luggage in a bus and were heading to Abu Dhabi.

"We (the beach soccer team) are dying and people are expecting us to give our best under very unpleasant circumstance," one of the players lamented.

The Nigerian contingent is now planning to move to the Abu Dhabi International Airport to spend the next 24 hours before its scheduled flight for Monday.
