One of the players who represented Nigeria at the U-20 Women’s World Cup in Papau New Guinea has been hospitalised in the traumatic unit of a hospital in Abuja, The Vanguard reports.

The defender, Mary Ologbosere, who recently lost her father was left depressed due to the Nigeria Football Federation’s inability to pay them.

Family members of the defender were expecting her to foot the bill for the burial, but she and her colleagues were handed a meagre N10,000 by the football body on Wednesday afternoon to return home.

“She is totally shattered by this heartless treatment,” simply reported a team official at the Serob Legacy Hotel.

“It’s truly a pathetic case.”

The N10,000 paid each player was the only money they received from the NFF since they opened training camp for the World Cup earlier this year.
