Courtney Dike has explained why she rejected bonus payments from Nigeria

Nigeria’s U-20 Women National Team star, Courtney Dike, has explained why she rejected bonus payments at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup finals in Canada.


The Oklahoma State University student wrote in an email: “I would like to respond to what I have been reading on the internet about rejecting bonuses.


“I am delighted to play for Nigeria whenever called upon. I knew before leaving for the U-20 World Cup that I would not accept any bonuses. Acceptance of prize money is against NCAA regulations (the division 1 collegiate governing body) here in the US, so that is the main reason for rejecting it.


“Knowing this beforehand, I still chose to represent the country because I believed the experience would be more valuable than the money, and I was right.”
