The Super Eagles have embarked on what you can rightly call a pay strike. A nominated player was due to attend the mandatory press conference pre-Guinea but didn’t show up.
Though, official reports say the player is ill but other sources say the players have refused to come out in what one could term a boycott or strike.
No official communication has been made by the NFF but the news making rounds from journalists in Egypt amonsgt whom kick442.com have a reporter is not a palatable one.
A similar situation had occur some days ago as the Super Falcons protested over unpaid bonuses after they were ousted from the World Cup.
The Nigerian Federation debunked the allegation afterwards and the girls had arrived yesterday to Nigeria.
The Super Eagles play Guinea in tomorrow’s AFCON game and the present situation may be a big distraction to the team.
