Super Eagles to get $2m from FIFA as World Cup preparations funds

The Nigeria Football Federation is to be given a $2 millon advance by FIFA towards the preparations of the Super Eagles for the Russia 2018 World Cup next month. 
The Confederation of African Football says the agreement for Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal and Tunisia will help settle beforehand the question of bonuses.  According to a report on the CAF official website, the decision comes on the heels of negotiations initiated by CAF president Ahmad with the FIFA administration, leading to the exceptional agreement granted on April 12 .

This follows a decision by the CAF Emergency Committee on December 1, and ratified by the CAF Executive Committee on January 10.

Ahmad said "This agreement, for an advance on the financial allocation by FIFA, aims to allow representatives at World Cups to have a harmonious preparation. It will also help to settle beforehand the question of bonuses due the players, which in the previous editions of the competitions has led to situations which affected badly the image of African football, with a considerable impact on team performances."
