The Super Eagles are reportedly asking for sum of $75,000 about N12.2m appearance fee which is the amount being paid to each of their
Ghanaian counterparts by the Ghana Football Association.
According to Vanguard report, the Super Eagles made their request known to the Senate President, David Mark when he came visiting them on Friday, June 13.
They also requested to be relocated from their Victoria Concept hotel in Campinas to a more ideal place. They described their hotel as isolated which makes them look like prisoners unlike other World Cup teams whose Federations lodged them in better and more ideal places.
David Mark was said to have listened attentively as they tabled their grievances, after which he appealed to the coaches and the players to put aside anything that would distract them from victory, while also reassuring them of the determination of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to give them the necessary support in the tournament to make Nigeria proud.
He however chastised the Nigeria football assocition (NFF) for not settling the issue of appearance fee promptly.
There are fears that if the players request are not met, it might dash whatever hope Nigerians have for the national team to do well in Brazil 2014 world cup.
The whole country is looking forward to the Nigerian footballers' first game against Iran in the Mundial on Monday. More than 300 Nigerians had left for Brazil several days ago to cheer the Super Eagles.
It was reported earlier that the NFF had confirmed that the Super Eagles would get $10,000 as a winning bonus at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Reports have it that Nigeria will earn over $9 million about (N1.4b) for qualification and participation in the first round of the Brazil World Cup and if the Eagles move into the second round more money would also be paid.
