Imo State governor, Hope Uzodinma, has gifted $10,000 to four players from the state who were part of the Super Falcons squad that participated in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The governor also promised the players a piece of land in choice locations in the state.

Uzodimma announced the rewards while hosting the squad members at the state house in Owerri on Tuesday.

The recipients are Desire Okparanozie, Chiamaka Nnadozie, Tochukwu Oluehi and Ohale Osinachi.

Last Monday the Falcons were eliminated from the World Cup following a 4-2 loss on penalties to the Lionesses.

Speaking on the team’s performance at the tourney, Uzodinma praised the quartet for their “wonderful representation of our state and country”.
