It was reported in the media that the players failed to agree with the NFF over the payment of their bonus in naira instead of dollars after beating Liberia 2-0 at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.
The players put aside their differences to overcome Cape Verde 2-1 in the second match of the qualifying campaign to top Group C on six points.
However, with fears that the bonus row may affect the team if not settled before their next round of matches in October, a source in a football house stated that the issue will be resolved.
“This is not a serious issue as reported by some media after the game against Liberia. The NFF is on top the situation and I don’t think it will distract the players from qualifying Nigeria for the World Cup.”
