The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) President, Ibrahim Gusau, has stated that the Super Falcons players will earn 60,000 dollars each following their elimination from the ongoing 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
Gusau spoke on Monday in Abuja, thanking the First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, for her support to the Super Falcons team before, during and after their performance at the Women’s World Cup.
He, however, promised that all the entitlements of the Super Falcons team and their officials would be paid accordingly.
Gasau said, “I want to express our gratitude to you for being part of the send off organised for the team before their departure to Australia, it really serves as a morale booster to the team.
“By reason of their round of 16 at the FIFA World Cup, the players will earn a sum of 60,000 dollars each, the NFF really wanted the team to go further in order for the players to earn more money which they truly deserve.
“I want to assure that the players and the officials will be paid all their entitlements as soon as we receive the World Cup money from FIFA.”
Recall that the Super Falcons were eliminated from the World Cup after losing to England following penalty shoot-out.
