In a way to condemned the unprofessional attitude of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, the current champion of Africa Women Cup of Nations, Super Falcons, has staged a sit-in protest in an Abuja hotel.
The gesture, is to demand for their entitlements for winning the African Women’s Cup of Nations in Cameroon on Saturday.
Having clinched the eighth African title with a lone goal win against Cameroon in the final of Awcons, the players said the NFF promised to pay their outstanding allowances for qualifying and win bonuses before the Awcons kicked- off.
The team head coach, Florence Omagbemi alongside her assistants have only received a month’s salary.
Meanwhile, United States-based Super Falcons forward, Francisca Ordega, says she regretted playing for the Super Falcons at the Awcons.
The Falcons forward, said she would opted to play for another country since the NFF is not dedicated and committed to support women’s football in Nigeria, adding that the neglect of women’s football by the country was regrettable.
The Washington Spirit player, said the Under-seventeen and Under-twenty teams had been blamed for the performances at their recent World Cups since the teams were poorly prepared for the competitions.
According to her, Nigeria’s female national teams will soon cease to be a force to recogn with in Africa since the players would not be willing to play for the national teams.
