They will get $20,000 (N6.1 million) if they win their remaining Group B matches against Guinea and Madagascar.

The players will receive $12,500 (N3.8 million) for a victory in the round of 16.

The Eagles will get $15,000 (N4.6 million) and $17,500 (N53.5 million) respectively for victories in the quarter-final and the semi-final, while a win in the final will see the three-time AFCON winners earn a $20,000 (N6.1 million) as match bonus.

“Group stage wins: $10k; Round of 16: $12.5k; QF: $15k; SF: $17.5k. And if they win the final: $20k. So, each player would earn $95,000 for winning AFCON2019,” a member of the Nigeria Football Federation’s Reforms Committee, Osasu Obayiuwana, disclosed.
