Super Eagles Boycott Training Over Unpaid Allowances

There is a slight disagreement between Super Eagles and Nigerian Football Federation( NFF) over their match bonuses at 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil  making the team boycot a training session on Thursday, 26 June, 2014 in Campinas.

The Super Eagles, who have qualified to the next round, feel  shortchanged on their bonus after moving to the next round of the competition.

According to BBC, the players expect $30,000 each but NFF is offering players their agreed win and draw bonuses plus 30% of the prize money for reaching the round of 16  while the players believe they will be paid  $15,000 comprising of $10,000 for their win 1-0 over Bosnia and $5,000 for the 0-0 draw with Iran.

Coach Stephen Keshi says the misunderstanding will be resolved and would not affect the performance.

The Super Eagles are scheduled to play France in the elimination stage of the world next week.
