The Nigeria Football Federation has dismissed reports that four Super Eagles players tested positive for COVID-19 ahead of Friday’s friendly against Algeria, reports Completesports.com.

“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,” reads a statement on the NFF’s official Twitter handle.

“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.”

The Super Eagles will take on Algeria at the Worthersee Stadium, Klangefurt on Friday. The game will kick-off at 7:30pm Nigerian time.

Nigeria will face Tunisia in another friendly at the Jacques Lemans Arena next week Tuesday.
