Falcons get win bonus for Sweden draw



Following their superlative comeback against Sweden, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) approved for the Super Falcons to get their full win match bonus.

The Falcons came from two goals down to pull out a 3-3 draw and shock bookmakers, who had given Sweden this game.

NFF head of women’s football and chairperson women league, Dilichukwu Onyedinma, said “the girls got full compliment of their bonus”.

She added: “NFF president, Amaju Pinnick, surprised the girls after the game when he announced that he has ordered that their full win bonus be paid to them.

“He even came ahead of the team waiting for them in the hotel and expressed his satisfaction with their performance.

“And I must tell you that this gesture from the president has propelled the girls. Remember that he had already promised them several other monies.”

    Go Girls we are proud of you.


      The girls were great against Sweden.Indeed they would have won if they had more time,but then,the game of football only lasts 90mins.They must therefore guard against conceding early goals and having to struggle to equalise.
