NFF reveals how South African Football Association Abandoned Super Falcons after Paris Olympic games qualifier

The Nigeria Football Federation – NFF, Director of Competitions, Ruth David has revealed how the South African Football Association authorities abandoned Super Falcons players and officials after Tuesday’s Paris Olympic Games qualifying game.

According to her; “SAFA officials made it clear that we were thenceforth on our own. They said the bus would not move us anywhere again, and that their responsibilities ended with the final whistle. They only took us back to the hotel, and no longer detailed security personnel for the delegation.

“We must commend the Charge d’Affaires in the Nigerian High Commission in Pretoria, Mr Alexander Tope Ajayi for all his efforts. He made the team feel comfortable and at home right from our arrival, organized dinner for the team, and mobilized and provided transport for Nigerians based in Pretoria to come to the stadium and support the team. He also organized transport and saw the team off to the airport on departure.”

Captain Rasheedat Ajibade’s well-taken penalty separated the two leading African women over both legs and sent the Falcons to France, while the Banyana will miss a third Olympics after their only previous appearance in London 12 years ago.
