The Nigerian government have rescinded their decision to ban the national football team from all competitions, just ahead of a FIFA deadline.

FIFA had threatened to suspend and even expel the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) due to government interference, as well as withholding the US Dollars 8million due to the association from the World Cup.

However, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has been convinced to change his mind and a statement on the NFF's website read: "The President and Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, on Monday graciously rescinded last Wednesday's decision to withdraw Nigerian national football teams from FIFA/CAF football competitions."
