In a statement released on Thursday, the NFF called for the support and prayers of Nigerians at this time, and urged that the players be allowed to focus on the big task of qualifying the nation to the 2018 FIFA World Cup, without so much negative stories and insinuations.

The NFF noted that over the past few months, some persons have made it their business to fabricate unhealthy stories about the NFF and Nigerian football.

It called on all stakeholders to disregard, henceforth, any report about the NFF that did not emanate from the NFF Communications Department.

The NFF however admitted to having financial challenges as a result of the current state of the economy but has assured that the players wouldbe able to fly to Tanzania.

The Super Eagles’ match against the Chipolopolo was initially billed for Monday, October 3, but the Zambian FA moved the date to Sunday, October 9 without giving any reason for the change of date.
