Senate President, David Mark, got a taste of the national football team camp when he held a meeting with the Super Eagles in Campinas before their match against Iran in Group F of the 2014 World Cup on Monday.

Mark, who led the Federal Government delegation to the World Cup in Brazil, demanded to hear the players’ grievances with the aim of settling the rift between them and the NFF over their bonus.

The players asked Mark to pay them $2m immediately from the $8m NFF was expecting from FIFA for the first round matches since he was the third in authority in Nigeria and representing the President. The players maintained that they should get 25 per cent of the money.
The players insisted that they must receive their money before their match against Iran, which eventually ended 0-0 in Curitiba.
When it became obvious that the players were not moved by his presence, the Senate President allegedly became angry...

It was learnt that after the players had spoken, coach Stephen Keshi later apologised to the FG delegation and the NFF members at the meeting.

 Keshi’s apology was received half-heartedly by Mark and NFF officials led by Aminu Maigari as they had expected him to step in much earlier.

Keshi did apologise but that was met with subdued hisses from those at the meeting,” an official, who pleaded anonymity, said.

The FIFA money fight is a carryover from their USA camp as they had put the NFF on notice over the money before agreeing to board the flight to Brazil. But why is NFF always trying to shop the boys money?

They are demanding for 25% of d money to NFF from FIFA. Have they ever considered their welfare how its been taking care of at Brazil. I think FIFA is giving out thismoney so that d players will be giving good accommodation & other things. Now d question is "if they are giving this money, will they take care of themselves"?
