Nigerian Teenage Women's U-20 Player Courtney Dike Rejects $7000 World Cup Bonus

Nigerian Women's U-20 player Courtney Dike has rejected the $7000 paid to her by the Nigeria Football Federation for participating at the just concluded 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup. The 19 year old refused the money, stating  that the honour of playing for her country was enough reward for her. 

NFF Head of Competition Sanusi Mohammed said, that the player rejected the outstanding allowances accrued to her for representing the country at the 10-day tournament. Sanusi told Brila FM, “When we called her mother to confirm the delivery of the allowances, she declined it and insisted that the opportunity of playing for Nigeria was all the reward the family needed.”
