ABUJA  (AFP) – Nigeria officials are working on a plan for the African football champions to train in Colombia, Argentina or the United States to prepare for next year’s World Cup in Brazil.

“We plan to camp the team in Colombia, Argentina or the United States of America,” said Chris Green, the head of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) technical committee.

“These countries share the same climatic conditions with Brazil. We will be inspecting many camp sites to finally decide where to camp the team.”

Brazil 2014 will be Nigeria’s fifth World Cup appearance after they made their debut at the 1994 tournament in the United States.

The NFF is waiting for the outcome of Friday’s World Cup finals draw before deciding on the base.
