The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) said on Sunday players of the Super Eagles would be tested for COVID-19 before the team’s next game against Tunisia.
The three-time African champions will take on the Carthage Eagles in Austria next Tuesday.
The players and coaches were subjected to the assessment before Friday’s game against African champions Algeria at the Jacques Lemans Arena.
However, they all tested negative for the virus.
The NFF in a statement denied claims in the media that four of the Super Eagles players in camp contracted the virus before Friday’s fixture with the Algerians.
“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,” the federation said.
“The writer of the story, who was not part of the press conference earlier today, totally misrepresented what coach [Gernot] 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.”
