The Chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, technical committee, Chris Green, has said a provisional squad list for the World Cup is ready and will be released next week.

In a press statement signed by the Federation’s spokesperson, Demola Olajiire, Green dismissed a newspaper report which stated that the Federation and the Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, lied about a squad list for Brazil 2014.

The report had claimed that Mr. Keshi did not submit any list at Tuesday’s technical committee meeting and that the Federation and the coach tried to manage “a bad case.”

“The list of players is ready. As we said, Coach Keshi is making more consultations and the list will be released next week,” Mr. Green said. “We have not defaulted in any way, because the deadline for the submission of provisional list of 30 players to FIFA remains May 13.

 There was no bad case at all. We met with coach Keshi and we discussed the programme of preparation for the World Cup, and everyone was happy. It was wrong for anyone to say that NFF and Keshi lied to Nigerians. We are responsible citizens and diligent in what we do, and will never take the nation and its people for a ride.”
