The Nigeria Football Federation has denied reports that four players in Super Eagles camp have tested positive to COVID-19 ahead of their friendly games in Austria.
The country’s football governing body spokes via its official Twitter handle: @TheNFF.
It tweeted: “Please discountenance any reports that some of our players tested positive to COVID 19 ahead of tomorrow’s friendly game against Algeria.
“It is a blatant falsehood.
“The writer of the story, who was not part of the press conference earlier today, totally misrepresented what Coach Rohr said that since the outbreak of the pandemic, four of our players had tested positive.”
The Gernot Rohr side will file out against the reigning African champions, Algeria, on Friday at 7:30pm Nigeria time.
