Pay Dispute Won’t Halt Nigeria’s World Cup Ambition- Alaiya

Nigeria national team will go ahead with their plans for Monday’s second round match against France, as the pay dispute involving the World Cup squad is sure to be dealt with in the interest of all.

The Super Eagles opted for a training strike on Thursday to press home their demands for full bonus payment after progressing to the knockout stage of the World Cup.

“We have held a meeting and the issue would be resolved amicably,” said the team’s spokesman Ben Alaiya.

Meanwhile the BBC Sport reports that President Goodluck Jonathan has assured the African champions they will get their money.
