Super Falcons continue sit-in protest over unpaid allowances
Nigeria’s women’s team have continued a sit-in protest in an Abuja hotel as they seek allowances and bonuses for winning the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
The Super Falcons players won their eighth African title on Saturday with a 1-0 win over hosts Cameroon.
They say the NFF promised them that their outstanding allowances for qualifying and their win bonuses would be sorted before the start of the competition.
The players are now holding out for both in their hotel.
Meanwhile falcons defender faith ikidi does not trust the competence of head coach Florence Omagbemi. She says the team must improve technically if the country aims to make impact at world level.
