NFF: Eagles Players Won’t Boycott AFCON Qualifiers Vs Egypt

By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:

Nigeria Football Federation have assured that there will be no players’ boycott and insisted that the Super Eagles will not allow the African Nations Championship setback to affect their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Egypt on March 16.


On the report that some of the players have threatened not to honour the Egypt game because of unpaid bonuses, NFF General Secretary Dr. Sanusi Muhammed said he is not aware of any threat of boycott by the Eagles’ players, adding that they as patriotic Nigerians will be available for the matches.

He said the players know the importance of the qualifiers to the country and would not want to disappoint their country and numerous fans by staying away to press home their demand for their outstanding bonus and allowances


He expressed gratitude to the minister of Youth and Sports Solomon Dalung and the Senate and House Committee on Sports for working round the clock in ensuring that the NFF get the money to prosecute their programmes.

Speaking with Complete Sports in Abuja, Dr Sanusi also assured that the federation will do everything humanly possible to ensure that the Eagles triumph over the Pharaohs of Egypt

He said the early exit of the Super Eagles at the ongoing CHAN in Rwanda will not be allowed to affect the AFCON qualifiers with Egypt in the first leg in Kaduna and the second leg in Cairo on March 16 and 21 respectively.

“We are putting all the necessary machinery in place for a resounding win in Kaduna and a good result in Cairo a week later. We are leaving no stone unturned in the build-up for the match. We have put CHAN behind us and focus is now AFCON,” he said.
