Super Falcons forward Francisca Ordega has said she regrets playing for Nigeria even as she had other countries she could have decided to represent, AfricanFootball reports.
Ordega decried the lack of support for women’s football in Nigeria.
The striker who was part of the victorious Falcons team in Cameroon said women football was not encouraged in the country.
“If I had not played for Nigeria, trust me I would have played somewhere else,” she said.
“The U17 and U20 teams have been blamed for the performances at their recent World Cups, but they were poorly prepared for these competitions.
“If this continues, Nigeria will soon cease to be a force in Africa because there will be no future Super Falcons.”
The Falcons are yet to be paid their allowances for the African women’s championship which they won.
