There seems to be no end in sight to the sit-in protest by the Flying Eagles, who have refused to leave Poland over unpaid wages by the Nigeria Football Federation.
It’s been over 30hours since the Eagles were dumped out of the FIFA U20 World Cup, losing 2-1 to Senegal in the round of 16.
However, the embarrassment of the team’s on-field performance seems little compared to the what the Nigeria FA has had to endure since news of the protest broke on Tuesday.
The Nigerian flying eagles is a reflection of everything Nigerian. Lies and deceit. Wuruwuru!! What a disgrace!!

A Brila.net source in the team’s camp confirmed, Wednesday Morning, that the players were staying put and are yet to leave.
The players are owed a backlog of allowances and bonuses for their participation at the world cup.
