Sportinglife can reveal exclusively today that the proposed training camp for the Super Eagles in Austria in September would gulp $150,000, but NFF chieftains want firm words from Nigerian stars’ European clubs that they would be released for the game.
Sportinglife scooped further that the consultation with the team’s stars’ European clubs would be conducted by Super Eagles’ manager Gernot Rohr.
Indeed, the NFF would rely absolutely on the feedbacks from Rohr’s assignment before committing any funds to the exercise in Austria.
Interestingly, NFF chiefs want to seize the opportunity of having two European countries in Austria during the period to have the Eagles play training games with them, though the matches would be non-scoring since September isn’t a FIFA-free window where points accrue to such international friendlies.

In fact. NFF’s tentative approach to getting the Eagles to converge on Austria rests with the fact that September isn’t a FIFA-free window which means that the European clubs are not duty-bound to release their players to their countries for international matches, especially during this Coronavirus pandemic.
