Disappointment as world champions, Golden Eaglets get ’nothing’ By Bede NNAJI

Information from the Nigeria Football Federation has it that the world conquering Golden Eaglets are yet to receive their match bonuses, weeks after defending the trophy in Chile. According to the Secretary General of the football federation, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, "the bonuses for the semi-final and finals of the world cup has not been paid to the Eaglets, there is no money and we can’t pay for now. “The problem is that we can’t pay the money we don’t have. There was rumour that we gave the players Twenty Thousand naira each as winning bonuses, where did we get money from? It’s just a lie, as soon as we get money we will pay all the players, they have done this country proud and we must appreciate them by paying all money due to them.”
