NFF never expected Super Falcons to Win the AWCON Title
Sports and Youths’ Minister, Solomon Dalung has explained that the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) never expected the Super Falcons to win the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations which ended in Cameroon on Saturday.
This, he stressed was the reason why the victorious Super Falcons have not been paid their allowances and bonuses till date.
The ladies, who won the competition for the eighth time in the tournament format era, have not been paid their entitlements and have decided to stage a protest.
Although the Super Falcons went into the tournament as defending champions and favourites, Dalung claimed that their triumph in Cameroon somehow came as a surprise and the authorities were not prepared for it.
“Don’t forget that nobody even knew the team would emerge victorious,” Dalung told State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Thursday, December 8.
