NFF: Why Falconets Overstayed At Istanbul Airport
Written by City Radio on August 24, 2022
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Wednesday explained that a number of factors, including the inability to secure transit visas for players and officials of the U20 female national team at the Istanbul Airport, led to the side having to stay 24 hours at the airport in Turkey on their way from the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.
It would be recalled that the NFF had implored the world-governing body, FIFA to intervene with the Embassy of Germany to issue the team transit visas before their departure from Nigeria in order for them to travel through Germany. This did not happen.
