Abuja - The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has moved to put an end to a players revolt over money.
The Super Eagles were reported to have missed a training session ahead of their round of 16 clash against France at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil due to issues of bonuses.
But the NFF in a meeting on Thursday said it is bent on putting an end to the unfortunate incident that brought the good image of the country to disrepute in the face of the world.
“Henceforth, all financial issues with players and officials must be thoroughly deliberated upon and agreed ahead of major matches and competitions, to avoid the kind of embarrassment brought upon the nation at the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil, when players boycotted training sessions before the Round of 16 match with France.” NFF said in a statement.
There are also plans for the Super Eagles to play a friendly against an African nation on the next FIFA window of August 13.
“Committee mandated the NFF Management to proceed with discussions with a number of African countries with a view to the Super Eagles playing a friendly match on the FIFA window of Wednesday, 13th August, 2014, as part of preparations for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches.”
