The Nigeria Football Federation has debunked reports that four Super Eagles players have tested positive for coronavirus.

The federation made this known in a series of tweets on Thursday.

It said the COVID-19 test results for players in Austria for friendlies with Algeria and Tunisia on Friday and Tuesday respectively are awaited.

Also, the spokesperson for the NFF, Ademola Olajire, denied the report in a telephone interview with our correspondent.

NFF 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, but were all now fully recovered from the virus and back in action.

“The results of the COVID 19 tests carried out on the Super Eagles ahead of tomorrow’s game are still being awaited.”
