Super Eagles players paid 2018 World Cup bonus

Super Eagles players have been paid a win bonus of $5,000-a-man for last year’s 2018 World Cup qualifying win in Zambia, officials have disclosed.

Nigeria defeated Zambia 2-1 in Ndola in October, but were yet to receive their entitlements.

President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has now confirmed they have been settled.

“I can confirm to you that the team have been paid the bonus for the Zambia match,” Pinnick said.

“We are now looking at the appearance fees for the friendlies against Senegal and Togo.”

The Eagles are entitled to $2,000 each as appearance fee for a friendly.

They will be paid $5,000-a-man if they beat South Africa in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday in Uyo.
