For qualifying for the 2016 African Nations Championship in Rwanda each member of the home – based Super Eagles team will be paid $2,000.
Although the squad was entitled to $1,000 per player after drawing against Burkina Faso on Sunday evening, the Nigeria Football Federation approved that the players should be paid the extra sum as qualification bonus.
The Nigeria delegation arrived in Port Harcourt on Monday morning at around 1:15 am aboard an Arik Air. 14 countries- including four from West Africa Nigeria, Guinea, Mali and Niger Republic – have booked their tickets to Rwanda following the matches that took place this past weekend.
We hope to see the Super Eagles team perform exceptionally during the Championship.
