The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have maintained they will airlift the country’s team to Zambia for a World Cup qualifier notwithstanding their current financial problems.
According to an official statement, the country’s football governing body said they condemn “in very strong terms” reports that they cannot airlift the Super Eagles to a World Cup qualifying match in Ndola on the 9th of October.
While admitting financial challenges as a result of the current state of the economy, the NFF expressed solid faith that matters would never get to the point of Nigeria being unable to get a national team to the venue of a competitive match or championship.
They called on all stakeholders to disregard, henceforth, any report about the NFF that did not emanate from the NFF Communications Department.
On Thursday, they also assured Nigerians that it had concluded arrangements on getting players and officials of the Super Eagles to Abuja for a training camp starting on the 2nd of October, getting the team to and from Zambia and getting the players back to their various clubs after the national assignment.
