'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fulham - A Far Cry from Jumpers for Goal Posts!

And there I was thinking it was all about the prestige of playing for your country at the greatest tournament in the World!

Apparently it`s not, there is something called money involved!

And it seems that Fulham`s Dickson Etuhu is one of a number of Premier League stars who are being hard done by.

Apparently the players are owed 2 million by the Nigerian Football Federation for qualifying for the World Cup.

Add to that the 6 million that FIFA gives to countries knocked out at the group stages and it comes to a tidy sum that the players fear they`ll not see their fair share of.

The tension relating to the above is blamed, by those in some quarters, for Nigeria`s poor showing so far.

Now we don`t want to get involved in the nitty-gritty of all this but we would like to say we find it a crying shame that financial concerns have brushed away the brilliant jumpers for goal posts ethic the game grew up with!
