Crisis hits Falcons camp

Falcons camp

Crisis has hit the camp of Super Falcons, ahead of the upcoming 10th Africa Women Cup of Nations (AWCON) in Cameroon from November 19 to December 3.

The title holders are pitched in group b together with arch-rivals Ghana, Mali and newcomers Kenya.

A source said the players are not happy that Nigeria football federation (NFF), failed to settle their outstanding qualifying match allowances and bonuses, after April’s successful qualifying match against the Teranga lionesses of Senegal in Abuja.

Falcons are equally yet to be paid last year’s Olympic qualifying campaign against Mali under former handler, Edwin Okon.

The domestic players are already in camp while their overseas counterparts, Rita Chikwelu, Ngozi Okobi, Faith Ikidi, Ngozi Ebere, Evelyn Nwabuoku, desire Oparanozie, Francisca Ordega and Asisat Oshoala, are being expected.

Falcons will kick-start their title defence on November 20, against Mali before meeting Ghana on November 23 and Kenya on November 26.
