Even before stepping on the field for Tuesday’s high-profile international friendly match against Egypt at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, the Super Eagles have been paid their full bonuses and match allowances for the match.
Disclosing this yesterday, President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick said that the team have also been paid all their approved camping allowances for last Friday’s AFCON qualifier against Seychelles, which the Nigerians won 3-1.
According to the NFF President, the team were paid their allowances well upon arrival at the camp directly by the Delta State government, hosts of the two matches.
“All the allowances of the team have been paid in full even before they stepped on the field for the match against Seychelles. Delta State government paid the money and we are very grateful for the government led by Sen Dr Ifeanyi Okowa”, said Pinnick.
He also informed that the full allowances of the U-23 team for tomorrow’s qualifying game against Libya have also been paid.
He urged the boys to rise to the occasion and overturn their 2-0 loss to qualify for the championship.
