Members of the U-23 team have been paid their camp allowances for 22 days, while injured striker Junior Ajayi has been cleared to feature in Saturday’s Olympics quarter final clash against Denmark.
The four-goal hero in the team opening game against Japan, Oghenekaro Etebo has been ruled out of the last eight clash slated for Arena Corinthians in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
“The Sports Ministry has cleared all camp allowances of the Dream team in Rio. Players and officials have now been paid 22 days allowances,” the team spokesman, Timi Ebikagboro told africanFootball.com.
This means each player has now received $3,300 with coach Samson Siasia getting twice that amount.
