FIFA to pay Super Eagles over N700million before 2018 World Cup Tournament

FIFA will give Nigeria and four other African football federations a $2million advance each on World Cup prize money, to pay player bonuses before the tournament in Russia.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) says the agreement for Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal and Tunisia will help “settle beforehand the question of bonuses.”

The 32 federations sending teams to the World Cup get $1.5m each from FIFA to prepare, plus at least $8m in prize money after the tournament.

CAF also added that money disputes at previous World Cups “affected badly the image of African football, with a considerable impact on team performances”.

At the 2014 World Cup: Cameroon arrived late, Ghana’s government had to fly in $3m cash to avert a strike and Nigeria players canceled a team training session.
