The Nigeria Football Federation is taken nothing to chance as it seeks a decent performance at this yearâ€™s World Cup in Brazil and better conduct by players and officials of all national team in the future.
Towards this end the federation during the week in faraway, Atlanta Georgia, United States handed out the much-hyped hand book on code of conduct while in the national team to players and officials of the Super Eagles. The 18-page document clearly outlines what is expected of players, officials and even the federation during camping and major tournaments.
NFF President, Alhaji Aminu Maigari, in the company of Chairman, Technical Committee Barr Chris Green and NFF Director, Technical, Dr Emmanuel Ikpeme came with the documents and handed them over to the team through Team Adminstrator, Dayo Enebi Achor, who has since distributed them to the players and officials of the team.

â€œThe document is done in good faith and to ensure that players and officials know their obligations and how to properly conduct themselves, while the NFF will ensure that it also fulfills its own part of the bargain during major tournamentsâ€, Maigari said.
The Nigerian delegation to the United States is expected back in Nigeria on today evening after playing a goalless draw against the El Tri of Mexico in an international friendly preparatory to Mundial 2014 in Brazil. The team will arrive through the Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos.
