Nigeria's Super Falconets to Embark on Protests in Abuja over Unpaid Allowances

Another set of Nigerian female footballers known as the Super Falconets have threatened to embark on a protest in Abuja on Tuesday, December 20, 2016 to press for their unpaid entitlements after representing Nigeria at the 2016 FIFA U20 World Cup held in Papua New Guinea.

At the World Cup, the Falconets could not make it out of their group despite winning two games in the championship.

They were trashed 6-0 by Japan in their first match before beating Canada and Spain in their second and third game respectively.

According to sources, the players were supposed to be paid the sum of two thousand dollars as winning bonus which means the players would get four thousand dollars each for the two games they won at the tournament.

Reports revealed that the players were all paid thirty thousand naira each as transportation fare by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) after they returned from the World Cup with the promise that they would get all their allowances last week.

''We have been begged not to go on protest, but it now looks that these people don't have any plans for us, and we have agreed to stage a protest on Tuesday, December 20, 2016 unless we see bank alerts.

''The NFF are not owing us only winning bonuses, but also camp allowances and other entitlements,'' a player said to Reporters.

Recall that the Super Falcons took to the streets of Abuja after winning the 2016 AWCON title which forced the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari to order their payment.
