Super Eagles allegedly demand World Cup appearance fee

Super Eagles players, reportedly led by Joseph Yobo and Mikel Obi have reportedly met with the leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to demand an appearance fee for the World Cup.

This is outside the match bonus, which starts at $10,000-a-man for a first round match win, announced for the players for Brazil 2014.

Nigeria will already automatically earn over $9 million for qualification and participation in the first round of the 2014 World Cup, Vanguard reports. The team will also receive additional money if they are able to.reach the knockout stages of the competition.

For the World Cup warm-ups against Scotland, Greece and USA, each player received an appearance fee of $3,000.

The players are demanding their own share of the country's appearance fee that FIFA will award, because reluctance to disburse this fee in the past has.reportedly caused disagreements between the team and NFF.
