Arsenal legend, Ian Wright has called out the Nigeria Football Federation over the ongoing pay dispute between the Nigerian Women’s team and the country’s football association.
Earlier this month, the General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation Dr Mohammed Sanusi told them their match bonuses £15,760 (AUS$30,000) for participation in the group stages of the tournament had been cancelled by the federation.
The team had even threatened to go on strike for the first match of the competition against Canada, who are also in the middle of a pay dispute with their own FA seeking equal pay and support with the men’s team.
After their stunning 3-2 win against hosts Australia, Wright has taken to social media to send out his message of support for the Super Falcons.
‘Pay them!!!!!!’ he wrote.
