The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have signed an agreement with the Super Eagles over earnings during the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

It was gathered that the agreement was reached with the players on Tuesday.

The Super Eagles went on a strike to demand for their bonuses during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. That’s a situation the current management of the football house does not want to reoccur.

The, however, did not disclose how much they agreed to pay the players.

“We have done it; we have concluded negotiations and come to agreement with the team as regards (to) bonuses, allowances and share of income from FIFA for the 2018 World Cup,” said NFF vice-president Shehu Dikko.

Also speaking, captain Mikel Obi said it was the first time such an agreement was reached.

“We also agreed on preparation, such as how much players will be paid for the friendly matches, including how and when the monies would be paid. We are very happy and excited with this development,” Mikel said.

“This is the first time since I started playing for the senior team that I would see everything regarding preparation and bonuses and allowances put down in black and white and a binding agreement executed.”

Nigeria beat Argentina 4-2 in a friendly ahead of the football fiesta in Russia next year.
