The Nigeria Football Federation has finally paid the country’s team to the FIFA U-20 women’s World Cup a paltry N30,000 each on their return to the country.
According to Vanguard, a breakdown of the N30,000 stipend showed that they received a transport fare of N10,000 while N20,000 was to cover their camp allowances.
It would be recalled that the players were stranded at their Serob Hotel in Abuja following the inability of the NFF to source for the fund as it was gathered that even the paltry sums were only sourced from borrowed fund.
However, officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have promised that their win bonuses of $2,000-a-player over Canada and Spain will soon be transferred to their various bank accounts
