The Nigerian women team has failed to leave their hotel in France after being eliminated by the two-time former world champion Germany until they are paid all their outstanding bonuses.

The players lamented that they are owed bonuses for the match against Gambia and Senegal two years ago summing up to 2 million Naira.

They only received half of the payment, adding that they are still being owed 5 Days of daily allowances while at the World Cup.

“They paid us 1 million [naira] and said that is all. We want them to pay the balance,” one of the players said. “Part of that money is from two years ago, and the other is from three years ago. And they also owe us five days’ daily allowance here in France.

“Before the World Cup, we asked them for a meeting so that we could discuss our World Cup bonuses as they did with the men’s team last year. They ignored the letter, and nobody said anything about it until now.”

Responding to the allegations, the Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick said that all the outstanding allowances had been paid.

“We have paid them everything they are being owed,” he said. “The only thing outstanding is the participation fee from FIFA, which is not expected to come until after the tournament. But they insist that they want to get paid, as they have spoken to players from Cameroon and France, who told them they have already been paid.”
