#Rio2016: Dream Team VI To Get Hero’s Welcome

By Adebayo Williams


Bronze-winning Dream Team VI will get a hero’s welcome when they arrive the country from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Samson Siasia-led boys beat Honduras to win the bronze medal. The boys will  be received in Lagos on Monday night before another will be done in Abuja.

“Based on the directives of the minister of youths and sports, the Dream Team VI will be well received on arrival tonight (Monday night) in Lagos. The team would be accorded another befitting reception on arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, coach Siasia confirmed the team’s arrival while appreciating his players and technical crew for a job well-done.

“We are arriving tonight in Lagos via South African Airline,” he told Goal.

“We are anxious to get back home to meet our darling fans and families having stayed away for months while preparing for the Rio Olympics.

“We are grateful to that we are not coming back to Nigeria empty handed. Kudos to the players, coaches and the other backroom staff of the team for a job well done.”
