The Nigeria U-20 finally settled down at the Quality Hotel Plymouth International Tuesday night ahead of the FIFA U-20 World Cup after an exerting trip across three continents, which spanned more than 25 hours.

The weather in New Plymouth is chilly and raining as this is the beginning of winter in New Zealand. Locals say it is colder than Auckland.

Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho, who arrived New Zealand the previous day from his English base, was on the flight to New Plymouth with the rest of the team.

Hungary, who will share the Quality Hotel in New Plymouth with their first round foes Nigeria, are expected to check in today.
