Upon their arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport Abuja on Tuesday, the Flamingos were presented with a dummy cheque of Three Million Naira (N3M) the sum promised by Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa.
The former Leicester City of England winger had promised to gift Three Million Naira to the team if they beat Germany in their Third-place match at the just-concluded FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup in India. Nigeria on Sunday became the second African country to win the Third-place match after a 3-2 win on penalties.
In a press statement by the Ministry of Sports, Ahmed Musa fulfilled his promised by presenting to the team the three Million Naira cheque. The statement reads in part,
“A dummy cheque of the sum of N3million promised the team by Super Eagles’ captain Ahmed Musa was presented to the players and officials at the airport.”
In the same vein, the Chairman of the NFF Task Force on Youth Competitions, Alhaji Aminu Balele Kurfi promised the team the sum of $10,000 for their historic performance at the FIFA World Cup.
