Super Falcons paid paltry N10 000 for booking AWCON ticket

13 April 2016, 15:34

Lagos - Players of the Nigeria senior national women’s team were rewarded with N10 000 ($50) for beating Senegal and booking a ticket to the 2016 Africa Women Cup of Nations to be hosted by Cameroon.

The Super Falcons defeated Senegal 2-0 in Abuja on Tuesday, and qualified for the tournament on a 3-1 aggregate after a 1-1 draw in the first leg played in Dakar on Friday.

Goal reports that the home based among the players were given the money to transport to their various destinations, with the promise that their bonuses would be paid.

Meanwhile, this is in contrast with the senior men's team that gets paid $4000 for a draw and $5000 for a win. The men failed to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations for a second straight year last month.

It would be recalled that in 2015, the victorious Golden Eaglets were decamped with N20,000 after winning the FIFA U17 World Cup.

The Super Falcons joined hosts Cameroon, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, South Africa, Cote d'Ivoire and Zimbabwe as the eight finalists for the 10th edition of the AWCON.
