NIGERIA'S  Super Eagles; Eagles will fly out of the country to Malawi tomorrow  to honour a Nations Cup qualifier against the Flames of Malawi.

According to the travelling arrangements released by the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, the Eagles will travel tomorrow night aboard a chartered flight, for Saturday’s 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying match against the Flames.

Officials confirmed yesterday that the team will leave tomorrow night and arrive in Blantyre, capital of Malawi, in the early hours of Friday, and will be able to train on Friday evening on the artificial turf of the Kamuzu Stadium.

Already, an advance party of NFF officials yesterday left the country for Malawi, so as to prepare ground for the team’s arrival on Friday morning.

The programme stated further that Saturday’s match at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre will start at 2.30pm Malawi time (1.30pm Nigeria time) and will be refereed by officials from Mauritius.

Meanwhile, the NFF has denied  a report that the sum of $80,000 belonging to the Federation went missing.

The story claimed that the sum went missing either during the U-20 Women’s Team’s trip to Kinshasa for a 2012 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifying game or on the team’s return, without being certain of the specifics.

NFF General Secretary, Barrister Musa Amadu said the report was shocking because the said sports paper is highly regarded by the leadership of the NFF.

“There is no iota of truth to the story and coming at this time that we are at the beginning of a busy and very important month in Nigeria football, it is disheartening.

“If our money was missing, we would be the first to declare so and state where and how that happened. This is a case of outright mischief.

He said further: “That story is only in the imagination of those who wrote it. There is nothing like that. If money was missing, players and officials would not have been paid their allowances and match bonuses and there would have been some spurious excuse for that.

“On the contrary, everyone (players and officials) received their full allowances and match bonuses and there was definitely nothing like any money missing”. Amadu called for the support of the entire nation in a month the Super Eagles has kicked off well with three points against Namibia in their start to the race to 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, and in which they still have to play Malawi and Rwanda in major tournament qualifiers, and the Super Falcons host Zimbabwe in an African Women Championship qualifying match, stating that this was no time for distractions as wished by mischief makers.
