U-23 Team escapes plane crash as Arik makes emergency landing

Nigeria U-23 team escaped plane crash while travelling to Gambia on Sunday morning as part of preparations for the African U-23 Championship billed for Senegal.

The Dream Team VI opted for the West African country after the initial trip to Morocco was cancelled due to visa issues, Goal reports.

A senior official of the team said the pilot of the Arik Aircraft made an emergency landing in Accra, Ghana, due to technical problems.
