Nigeria has confirmed it will compete in this month's Confederations Cup in Brazil, the dress rehearsal for soccer's 2014 World Cup, after a dispute over bonus payments to players was resolved.
Nigeria's first match in the tournament is against Tahiti in Belo Horizonte next Monday, but the Nigerian players had refused to leave their hotel in Namibia and missed a scheduled flight.
It was claimed the players were angry over unpaid bonus money promised to them after they beat Kenya 1-0 in a World Cup qualifier last week.
The players wanted £6,370 ($10,000) each but the Nigeria Football Federation refused.
The Nigerian players had then been offered a bonus £1,590 following their 1-1 draw in Namibia in another World Cup qualifier on Wednesday, but the players wanted more.
Jerome Valcke, secretary general of Fifa, soccer's governing body, said: "They will be in the plane on Saturday and will be at the Confederations Cup - the problem is solved."
After taking on Tahiti, Nigeria play Uruguay in Salvador on June 20 and Spain in Fortaleza on June 23.
Nigeria qualified for the Confederations Cup after winning the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year.
Meanwhile, Fifa president Sepp Blatter has moved to allay fears over the readiness of a number of stadiums in Brazil for the start of the Confederations Cup.
Workmen are still involved in construction projects at and around the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro, the venue for Italy versus Mexico on Sunday.
Blatter said: "I have been to many tournaments when the painters are still painting the stadiums an hour before the first match. It is not a surprise to me that people are still working.
"It just means that something has not been finished and they need to finish it."
