Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has assured that despite the Federal Government non-release of the 2012 annual budget, the federation would continue to prosecute its international friendly and Nations Cup/2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers matches.

General Secretary of the federation, Barrister Musa Amadu, who gave the assurance while fielding questions from Daily Sun Sports in his office, also noted that they are not completely ruling out the possibility of playing host to matches at the abandoned National Stadium, Abuja stressing that the authorities could fix it before June.

On the international friendly against the Pharaohs of Egypt, the Glass House chief scribe said: 'We are doing everything possible including logistics to prosecute all the friendly match against Egypt in the UAE on Thursday next week.

I'm sure that the team should travel after the Esther holidays for the continental engagements.

'You know that some of the players are playing for Dolphins, Sunshine Stars, Warri Wolves and Heartland FC.

'The players will rejoin the camp after the continental engagements because the clubs requested their services to prosecute the second leg encounter this weekend. The match is very important because it is part of the arrangements to give the home-based a chance to stake a claim in the national team,' he noted.
