Everything seems to be going on smoothly for the Super Eagles ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup to be staged in Russia.

They have gotten lots of sponsors, camp base, and now, they will get their camping allowances upfront.

Minister of Youth and Sports Development Solomon Dalung said the idea is to prevent crisis and distractions during the tournament.

“The Federal Government of Nigeria has mobilised and has overcome some of the common obstacles that usually characterised our preparation.

“Our team would have their camping allowances even paid upfront so that we eliminate the crisis of allowances in camps.

“Bonuses are progressive with performance, that one we are also sure that they will do well in it.

“We have also kept the team together and the leadership, and maintain harmony in their football family to be able to give Nigeria victory.

“One thing remains very sure, with the qualification of Nigeria, the country has made a statement that she is not going to Russia as a mere spectator.

“We are contenders that the world should watch out for,” Dalung said.

Nigeria would be facing former World Champions, Argentina, Croatia and Iceland in Group D, but Dalung said there is no cause for alarm as Nigeria is prepared for the challenge.
