Women’s WC: Super Falcons to earn $60,000 for Round of 16 slot


The Super Falcons will each earn $60,000 match bonus if they reach the Round of 16 at the ongoing 2023 Women’s World Cup.

The former African champions need a point from their last group game against the Republic of Ireland, on Monday (today) to confirm their place in the knockout round.

A place in the Round of 16 will see each player earn another $30,000, totalling $60,000.

The Nigerian Football Federation will also earn another $310,000, after pocketing $1,560,000 for the Falcons’ participation in the competition, altogether making it $1,870,000 if the team progress to the knockout stage.

Meanwhile, coach Waldrum has insisted that the final Group B clash against the already eliminated Republic of Ireland will not be an easy affair.

“Ireland, first of all, it’s not going to be an easy game,” Waldrum told The PUNCH in an exclusive interview.

“They’ve been very good in the first two matches and probably if they had managed the game better, they would have gotten a result against Canada.

“We certainly can’t take it that we are already through because we are not, and we’ve been focusing on recovery, getting fresh and healthy and reminding ourselves about what we are playing for and that we have to go out and control our destiny, which a draw and a win will assure us.”

“A win certainly gives us the chance to even win the group, and without getting the result, we could be out on goal difference,” the American added.

“So, still a lot to play for and just trying to keep them (players) focused and not read the hype that is going on in the media, stay level-headed, be professional and make sure we finish out the job.”

“We’ve got a massive game that Vera’s going to get us prepared for, lead us into. For us, that’s obviously what we’re concentrating on right now. I haven’t thought anything past that.

“We need to focus on what we’re doing here and now. We’ve got so much to play for in the last game,” Girls in Green centre-back Louise Quinn stated.
