The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) says some Super Eagles players were not involved in a sex party before their 2022 World Cup qualifier against Cape Verde in Lagos on November 16 as rumoured.
The Eagles played out 1-1 draw against Cape Verde, sending them to the playoffs in March.
However, it was rumoured on social media on Monday that Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr had wanted to drop three players from the team after they had broken camp rules before the game.
It was alleged that the three players who allegedly organised the sex party were Leicester City forward, Kelechi Iheanacho; Alanyaspor defender, Chidozie Awaziem; and Leganes defender, Kenneth Omeruo.
It was also reported that Rohr was prevailed upon by NFF President Amaju Pinnick which made him start two of the three players in the game against Cape Verde.
However, NFF spokesman Ademola Olajire told PUNCH that nothing of such ever happened.
“The NFF has no comment, they can write whatever they want to write because it didn’t happen,” he said.
A source close to Omeruo also told the newspaper on the condition of anonymity that the player feels the story was planted to force him out of the team.
