Joseph Yobo: 'Nigeria focussed on France clash'

Nigeria captain Joseph Yobo says that he is only concentrating on his country's World Cup match against France, despite a row over bonuses.

Nigeria captain Joseph Yobo has said that he is only concentrating on his country's World Cup match against France, despite a row over bonuses.

The Super Eagles boycotted training on Thursday after demanding to be paid their appearance bonus for reaching the knockout stages of the tournament.

"We are here to play for our country," he told KickOffNigeria.com. "I can tell you as team captain that the team will travel to Brasilia today and we will train, and play against France."

Nigeria play France in the last 16 of the tournament on Monday.
