Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) officials have assured they got approval for players of the Super Eagles to be paid $10,000 each for the two wins against Zambia and Algeria, but the cash will be transferred to their accounts.
Each player received N350,000 as training camp allowance for the Algeria match after the stipend was increased from N20,000 a day to N50,000. They also got cash for Lagos-Abuja return ticket.
“We have got the approval for their bonuses, which will be paid into the accounts,” a top official informed.
However, it was not ascertained if the money will be paid in US dollars as the team have demanded or in local currency and at what conversion rate.
