The NFF stated this on its official twitter page on Thursday afternoon, adding that the news is a blatant falsehood.
According to the NFF, the writer of the story, who was not part of the press conference earlier on Thursday, totally misrepresented what Coach Rohr said that since the outbreak of the pandemic, only four Super Eagles players had tested positive, but were all now fully recovered from the virus and back in action.
NFF further said that the results of the Covid-19 tests carried out on the Super Eagles ahead of tomorrow’s game are still being awaited.
“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.”
