Abuja - The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) says Nigerians
that the Super Eagles technical crew had not been distracted in their
preparations for the Brazil 2014 World Cup.
Secretary-General of the NFF, Musa Amadu told newsmen at a
briefing in Abuja that the FA was working assiduously with the team’s technical
crew for a better outing.
Amadu said that arrangements had been made for the team to leave
their camp for match venues, one day to the encounter. This, he said, would
enable the team to concentrate on their matches during the tournament.
He added that air travel arrangements during the tournament
had also been concluded to ease the team’s movement for their matches.
“The team base, the hotel Camp, is on the outskirt of
Sao-Paolo and this is where most of the National teams are based. This is where
the team will stay and will be leaving to match venues in the group stage and
they will move a day before these games and return to their base after the
“Brazil is a vast country and some of the travels you have
to do are more than one, two or three hours but there are chartered flights,
not that we will take commercial flights. FIFA has made arrangement with all
the airlines there; its chartered flight just for the teams and it will take
each team to their specific match venue,’’ Amadu said.
The NFF scribe urged Nigerians to pray and support the team
as they prepared for the World Cup, and said that there were no disagreements
between the organisation and Keshi over team list.
