The much maligned Green Bowl Soccer Tournament in the United States has been moved to February 26 after organisers finally secured the official sanction of the US Soccer Federation.
And in further cheering news for Nigerian fans, a squad of 22 players and 8 officials were on Thursday issued entry visas by the US Embassy. Samson Siasia's wards will now depart on February 23 for the tournament, which will now take place over two days and feature four, instead of the initial eight teams. The other three teams involved are Costa Rica, Mexico and Panama.
