Super Falcons given $5k instead of $10k promised to them


Reigning African women champions, the Super Falcons, were paid a total of $5,000 each instead of $10,000 promised to them for their win against South Africa in the final of the recently concluded Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON).

The Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick had, just before the game, promised to reward the Super Falcons with $10,000 if they retained the AWCON title in Ghana. And they did, however, according to Scorenigeria, NFF officials have now claimed the president was misquoted as promising to pay them $10,000.

Scorenigeria reports that the Super Falcons staged a protest but ended it when NFF officials assured them they will do something about the situation.
