WorldStage Newsonline- The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has urged the Super Eagles to go for the trophy at the World Cup in Russia, with the promise to reward them with 24 million dollars if they play in the final.

"If for example we don't have money to prepare them, they can relax but now, we have given them everything upfront and they should deliver".

According to a segment in the communique released by the NFF after their board meeting, the Franco-German coach of the Super Eagles has received his salary till the end of July, which is the end of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The Executive Committee also mandated the Chairman, Organising Committees and Secretary General to meet in the next few days to conclude all matters with regards to the 2018 FIFA World Cup match tickets for the Nigerian contingent and other stakeholders. I am a very transparent person and every detail on bonus for each match and up to the final as well as share of income from Federation Internationale de Football Association money was agreed on. The $2.8 million we agreed with the players is nearly 100 percent already for them to collect whenever they come. We are not going to give them any money.


As part of strategies to ensure Nigeria have a successful campaign at the forthcoming World Cup in Russian Federation, the NFF has mandated relevant committees to meet and conclude all arrangement for the camping of the Super Eagles ahead of the send forth match against DR Congo on May 28. We had a conclusive meeting with the England FA.

On the goalkeeping situation of the Super Eagles, Pinnick said plans are underway to dispatch goalkeeper trainers to all the national team keepers including Dele Alampasu, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Daniel Akpeyi and the Spain-based goalkeeper Francis Uzoho for one-on-one training ahead of the World Cup.
