- Nigeria national male U20 team have cried out to the NFF for the payments of their allowances
- The Flying Eagles said the Nigeria Football Federation are yet to fulfill the promise made to them
Players of the Nigeria's men U20 national team known as the Flying Eagles have cried out to the football authorities in Nigeria over their unpaid allowances.
Although, the Flying Eagles failed to qualify for the 2017 African Youth Championship after losing to Sudan in the qualifiers, but the players have explained that the Nigeria Football Federation have not paid them their wages for the games.
According to Owngoalnigeria, the players explained that the NFF promised that their bonuses would be paid after the qualifiers, but they have not been contacted since their ouster.
''We threatened not to honor our last game against Sudan, but the NFF said we would be paid after the game, but since then, we have not heard anything from them.
''They did not pay us anything for the qualifies and even camp allowances and we believe the NFF have received the money from the ministry of sports,'' a player said
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) led by Amaju Pinnick are now in a confused situation as virtually all the Nigeria's football national teams have complained of being owed.
