Players skipped training on Thursday as they demanded for the payment of their appearance bonus for making it out of the first round of the World Cup.

The squad had agreed a graduated percentage payment for each stage, and the players wanted the first instalment, for reaching the round of 16, paid.

Yobo says the players have resolved to the issue behind them and focus on football.

"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."

The squad are scheduled to depart from Campinas at 2PM local time (6PM Nigeria time), and Yobo insists there will be no further issues.

"We will be on that plane. And we will train today."
