Super Eagles

An anonymous member of Nigeria’s Super Eagles team has given an hint on the reason why key players are pulling out of the friendly match against Cameroun.

No less than seven players have pulled out of coach Gernot Rohr’s team ahead of the International friendly against the Indomitable Lions.

Gernot Rohr who spoke to ESPN Africa  said that he spoke to some of the players who pulled out and they cited injury worries as the reason for their absence.

However, one of the players who also spoke to ESPN Africa said the players are not happy with the NFF especially as regards the payment of their allowances and match bonuses.

He hinted that the Super Eagles have not been paid their bonuses and allowances for the just concluded AFCON qualifiers.

“The players are not happy,”. “They have not paid bonuses and allowances, nothing at all for the entire [2021] Afcon qualifiers.”

“We have sacrificed by playing throughout the qualifiers without being paid. I think now, with all the injuries, it is hard for many of us to make the sacrifice to come and play a meaningless friendly when the outstanding bonuses have not been paid.

“It is better for us to stay away, recover properly, rest and get ready for the new season and the World Cup qualifiers.”
