For their feat of beating the USA U-17 girls in the ongoing U-17 Women's World Cup in India, the Nigeria U-17 female team has been rewarded with the sum of 2.1 million naira.


The cash gift came courtesy of Ratels Sports Development Foundation (RSDF) after their 4-3 win on penalties following a 1-1 draw at regulation time which took the girls to semifinals of the tournament.


President of RSDF, Barr. Paul Edeh, who announced this on Friday while speaking to the team via phone call said the reward in support of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) efforts will further boost their morale going into the last four stage.


“Beating USA and reaching the semi-final stage of a World Cup for the first time is a no mean feat. This is highly commendable and I implore the team to do more.


“We are so impressed with your performance and I know many Nigerians will still do well to appreciate you more. Just remain focused,” he told the team.


RSDF has now supported the team with a total of N3.8 million – N1.7 million during the qualifier and now N2.1 million.


The Foundation also promised to increase the amount to N3 million when they make it to the final.
