Nigeria’s Super Eagles have suspended their preparation strike over unpaid rewards at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt following a minute ago mediation by top football authorities.

The group, at last, consented to prepare in Alexandria, 30 minutes after timetable, after the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) guaranteed to pay a success reward from their 1-0 triumph over Burundi on Saturday, before the week’s over.

NFF representative Ademola Olajire said “the issue has been settled”, surrendering that assets for the competition had arrived late.


“The NFF received part of the money meant for the tournament today and is in the process of converting it to dollars to pay the players and officials. The only money they’re owed is the win-bonus for the Burundi match” he said.

The bonuses were expected to be paid by the NFF after Saturday’s game ended. Officials close to the team, who spoke under anonymity, told AFP that following reassurances from the NFF “the team captain spoke to the players, asking them to show some understanding after which the team agreed to train”.

The players had earlier boycotted the official pre-match conference.  Other NFF officials disclosed that the players have been paid a daily training allowance of $200-a-player from June 2 to June 30.
