Nigeria team for the FIFA Under-20 Women World Cup, the Falconnets had their morale boosted in their training camp, when sports minister, Solomon Dalung gave the team $7,000.

The girls and their coaches have been going on without any allowances since they started training and player their qualification matches for the tournament later in the year in France.

“My passion for women’s football is high and I don’t like the idea of treating people differently. I don’t like injustice and it doesn’t look fair for them to be in camp without their entitlements. These are young players and if you don’t give them the morale support they need now, when will you do that? Dalung queried.

The Minister promised to ensure that the players get all their entitlements when he gets back to work .

He wished the injured players a speedy recovery while praying for a successful outing in France .
