The General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, says the Falconets missed their flight from Istanbul, Turkey to Nigeria, adding that they were not stranded in the European nation.

Sanusi’s claim followed reports that the Falconets, who left Costa Rica, venue of the 2022 U-20 Women’s World Cup, on Monday after crashing out of the competition, were stranded in Istanbul.

The players were pictured sleeping on bare floors and chairs at the Istanbul airport waiting for their flight.

In a chat with The PUNCH, Sanusi described the reports as mischievous and misleading, saying the girls missed their connecting flight.
