African champions Nigeria will train in Houston in the United States for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, a top official has announced.
Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi had proposed the team train in either Miami or Houston for the World Cup, but top Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) official Chris Green said the country had settled on the Texas city.
"Nigeria will train for the World Cup in Houston," said Green, chairman of the NFF technical committee.
"We want to make a statement at our fifth World Cup and so we have to prepare adequately."
