Eagles charter flight for World Cup tie

The Super Eagles will fly to Malawi on chartered flight for a World Cup tie in June to ensure nothing is taken for granted, officials said. The Flames of Malawi will host Nigeria in a 2014 World Cup qualifier on June 9.

A top Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) official specially told “We plan another chartered flight for the World Cup qualifier in Malawi.

“We want to ensure adequate preparation for the match and as such we are leaving nothing to chance especially as it concerns the comfort of the players.”

In February, the NFF also chartered a flight that set them back by as much as $180,000 (about 29 million Naira) for the team’s 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Rwanda. The Eagles flew on special flights for 2012 Nations Cup qualifiers in Ethiopia and Madagascar.
