Super Falcons’ defender undergoes surgery.

Super Falcons defender, Onome Ebi, has undergone a successful surgery on her broken arm suffered during the just concluded Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in Cameroon.


The surgery was conducted on Tuesday at the National Hospital in Abuja.


Ebi, who is one of the veterans in the Super Falcons team that won a record eight African title last weekend, gave glory to God for the successful operation carried out on her.


She wrote on her Instagram page: “Thank you Lord God for save surgery, receive all thy glory in Jesus name Amen”.


Though we understand that the NFF footed the bill for Ebi’s surgery, the Federation is still defaulting on bonuses to the injured defender and her teammates that did Nigeria proud yet again at the AWCON 2016.


The NFF through their General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi on Tuesday pledged to pay players and officials of the senior women national team, Super Falcons, all their entitlements for winning the Women Africa Cup of Nations the eighth time, saying the money was not readily available at the moment.
