Nigeria U-23 Team Gets N2.4Million Each

 Beside what the Federal Government will give the Under-23 team for winning the CAF Nations Cup in Senegal on Saturday, each of the players has received $12, 000 bonus for all the matches they played at the tournament.
This is equivalent to almost N2.4 million, according to one of the players. He said,  “We have been paid our winning bonus for the final.”

While their Coach Samson Siasia was paid double this amount, each player received $4,000 for the final win, $3,000-a-man for the semi-final win over hosts Senegal, $2,000-a-man for the opening-day win over Mali, and $1,000 for the draws with Egypt and Algeria.

They were also paid $100 per day for the 10 days they trained in The Gambia prior to this championship.
