Victorious Super Eagles of Nigeria are now smiling to the bank after they got some of their outstanding payments immediately after their 2-1 win in Zambia yesterday.
They received their flight ticket refunds, match bonus for the AFCON qualifier against Tanzania last month as well as appearance fees for two friendlies in May against Mali and Luxembourg.
It is estimated that a player who was involved in all three matches would have received close to $8,000.
The win bonus for Sunday’s World Cup qualifier in Ndola is now the only payment outstanding for the Eagles.
Next month, Nigeria will welcome Algeria to Uyo in continuation of the World Cup qualifying series.
