ABUJA â€“ Players of the Super Eagles are looking up to pocketing $10,000 each as new match bonus against Tunisia in the September 6 World Cup qualifier at the Abuja National Stadium.
This new package to encourage the players is a joint effort between the Nigeria Football Federation and the 12_man Presidential Monitoring Committee to ensure the countryâ€™s flag is among those to be hoisted in South Africa for the 2010 World cup finals.
Chief Taiwo Ogunjobi believes that with the new package, â€œthe Super Eagles need to put in their best and beat Tunisia.
â€œWe want to take the matches one after the other. After the match against the Tunisians on September 6 in Abuja then we will start talking of the away encounters against Kenya and Namibia. With the playersâ€™ bonus now increased to $10,000 each, we believe that they would put in their best. As a matter of fact each of the players was given $10,000 in Tunisia, and the Presidential Committee might still want to increase it in order to further boost the playersâ€™ morale.
