Abuja - The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) says it will decide on Friday which city in the US the Super Eagles will be based for its preparations for the 2014 World Cup.
Ademola Olajire, the NFF’s head of media, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Abuja the decision was delayed to enable the association’s agent conclude all arrangements.
NAN reports that the 2014 FIFA World Cup will hold from June 12 to July 13 in Brazil.
Olajire said it would have been improper for the NFA to announce the camp site when the agent was yet to conclude the camping arrangements.
"It is obvious that the Eagles will camp in the US but we will announce the city by the end of this week.
"I am in touch with the agent and he will finalise the arrangements by Friday," he said.
On the Eagles' involvement in an eight-nation tournament in the US, Olajire said the NFF had no financial commitment to the tournament.
He said the Major League Soccer (MLS), the organisers of the tournament, had already communicated the NFF on the national team's involvement.
Olajire said the Eagles were among the invited teams by virtue of being the African champions.
NAN reports that Cote d' Ivoire and Nigeria as well as one of the Eagles' World Cup Group F opponents, Bosnia-Herzegovina, are part of the tournament.
Other participants are Spain, Greece, Honduras, Bolivia and El Salvador.
The tournament is expected to hold between May 27 and June 10.
