The Nigeria Football Federation has sent a letter of condolence to the family of former Super Falcons’ player, Felicia Eze, who died on Tuesday after a brief illness.

The letter, sent through the management of her former club, Delta Queens Football Club, and signed by NFF General Secretary, Barrister Musa Amadu, mourned the untimely demise of the former national star who represented the country with patriotic zeal and sense of commitment.

“The death of anyone, let alone an active and lively sportswoman, who had her life ahead of her, is usually a very painful and heartbreaking experience, and the Nigeria Football Federation mourns deeply with you in your time of grief.

“We are only consoled by the fact that death is an inevitable end for every human, and that the departed Felicia Eze left her footprints in the sands of time as a disciplined and hard working football player for club and country.”

The NFF is already in contact with the late Felicia Eze’s family to know about the plans for the burial, as the Federation wants to be fully involved.

Have your say. We'd love to know what you think.
