The entire players team of AFCON 2021, alongside back room staff were paid their match bonuses and allowances by Nigeria football federation.
According to one of the players who spoke to www.ckdmedia.ng, “I just received the money this Monday afternoon, dated 31st January, 2022. We would have earned more if we had progress to the next stage of the qualification. We were destined not to advance to the next round . We did all we could before and during the match but mother luck did not smile on us. A sad experience for me”, The anonymous player concluded.
