Flying Eagles Camp News : Agent Makanjuola Bribes Officials; Why Man City, Watford, Everton Talents Refused To Bribe; Assist. Coach Petitions NFF On Aigbogun; Top Official Lands In Germany
Allnigeriasoccer.com understands the Nigeria Football Federation are set to announce the Flying Eagles roster for the 2019 World Cup any moment from now and it appears some roster spots will go to the highest bidder.

Already three promising players representing English Premier League clubs in the shape of Manchester City's Fisayo Dele-Bashiru, Everton's Korede Adedoyin and Watford's Jayden Bennetts are not in contention to make the 21-man roster, having departed camp last week.

They have argued that they couldn't bribe the coaching staff because they spent a lot of money traveling to the training camp and the practice of bribery is alien to England, where they grew up.

Using the England U20 team as a case study, manager Paul Simpson will give the same opportunity to all the players invited to the national team to prove themselves before dropping players which wasn't observed by Flying Eagles boss Paul Aigbogun.

Controversial agent Nureni Makanjuola frolicked with officials of the Flying Eagles when he visited camp and was caught red handed doling out foreign currency to the officials, so it didn't come as a surprise when his player Success Makanjuola was secretly added to the provisional squad list.

Meanwhile, assistant coach of the Nigeria U20s, Abdullahi Maikaba has written a petition to the Nigerian Federation on Paul Aigbogun, regarding how the team was selected.

The NFF asked Maikaba if Aigbogun collected bribe before selecting the players and he replied no.

A top official of the Nigerian Federation landed in Frankfurt, Germany this morning and will carefully scrutinize the Flying Eagles 21-man roster before it is made public.
