Angry Nigerian man attacks Super Falcons players
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how an unidentified Nigerian man caused chaos inside a train carrying the Super Falcons to training in Vienna, Austria.
The current African champions are currently on an 8-day training camp for the Aisha Buhari Invitational Women’s Football Tournament.
The man stood up from his seat and started making a video while insulting the ladies for representing the country.
He accused the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration of caring less of the youths back home and blamed the girls for not protesting for their rights in a democratic state.
The man even went on as pointing accusing hands at Switzerland-based Super Falcons star Onyinyechi Zogg as been unwise for choosing to represent the 11-time African champions.
