After their defeat to Germany on Friday, the Super Falcons have threatened to hold a sit-in protest due to unpaid bonuses and allowances. The outstanding money also includes the Fifa participation fee for playing in the tournament. However, according to the NFF, that fee will only be distributed to players after the conclusion of the Women's World Cup because Fifa is not scheduled to release the money until later in the year. It is reported the Super Falcons have only been paid half the 2m Nigerian naira (£4,360) they are owed from previous international fixtures over several years.
It was an outstanding victory for the Falcons on Tuesday, as they snatched the win from the Taeguek Nangja with a 2-0 score line. After both losing their opening matches, pressure was mounting on the two teams to make a statement and the Falcons had the upper hand.
