No bonus distractions for Nigeria

16 June 2014, 13:15

Sao Paulo - The Nigerian camp claims that bonus issues have been sorted out and will not prove to be a distraction during the World Cup.

The Super Eagles kick off their 2014 World Cup campaign on Monday evening when they clash with Iran at the Arena da Baixada in Curitiba.

According to Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) Technical Committee Chairman, Chris Green, the camp is united as far as the payment of bonuses is concerned, despite there having been talk of the contrary.

"When the Senate President, Dr David Mark came here to meet with us and the players, he was totally convinced at our sincerity with the players and what we have on board as the team progresses but some people are just hell bent on ensuring that they raise issues that don’t even exist," Green said.

The NFF has agreed with the players to pay a $10,000 winning bonus for first round games, $12,500 for second round games, $15,000 for quarter final and $20,000 for semi-final. This will increase to $25,000 if the team wins the trophy.

Assistant captain Vincent Enyeama meanwhile has implored his team-mates to keep their focus purely on the field.

"We are ready for Iran and that is what is on our minds  at the moment, every other thing will be settled after this competition," said the goalkeeper.
