The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has confirmed that there was misunderstanding in the camp of the Super Eagles but it has been resolved.

“It’s true that there was a little misunderstanding in the camp of @NGSuperEagles, but the matter has been resolved. Enyeama remains in camp,” reads a tweet from the official handle of the NFF.

The Super Eagles camp in Belgium was torn into shreds following squabbles between Coach Sunday Oliseh and captain Vincent Enyeama ahead of Thursday friendly against Congo.

The arrival of Lille goalkeeper and captain of the Eagles in Belgium which ordinarily should bring cheers to the camp instead, turned the camp into a war zone following allegations of anti-camp activities against the captain.


”Things are no longer at ease in camp. There was an open shouting match between the coach and Enyeama”, our source said on our hotline last night.

The source claimed that Sunday Oliseh was so furious that he threatened to work out of the Eagles camp if Enyeama does not leave camp.

”Oliseh still insists Vincent Enyeama should be decamped or he will work out of camp”.
