The Super Falcons are yet to be paid their allowances and bonuses and Francisca is frustrated at the lack of support for women’s football in Nigeria.

If I had not played for Nigeria at full international level, trust me I would have played somewhere else,” the US-based forward told newsmen.

The U17 and U20 teams have been blamed for the performances at their recent World Cups, but they were poorly prepared for these competitions.

“If this continues, Nigeria will soon cease to be a force in Africa because there will be no future Super Falcons.”

The Super Falcons players are currently in Abuja awaiting a reception by the Federal Government.
