AFCON qualifiers: Nigeria vs S/Leone Eagles spoil for showdown over unpaid bonuses, appearance fees

Angry Super Eagles stars are now spoiling for a showdown with top football officials after they are yet to be paid $17,500 (more than nine million Naira) bonus each for finishing third at last year’s AFCON in Egypt.
This revelation comes as SCORENigeria learnt the Eagles are also owed bonuses for various other matches.


This will include the wins over Benin and Lesotho in 2021 AFCON qualifiers as well as appearance fees for the team’s last four friendlies – vs Ukraine, Brazil, Algeria and Tunisia.


A source told SCORENigeria: “The boys are no longer smiling over the outstanding bonuses going back to the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.


“They have said their patience has run out and they will have to be paid these monies before the first match against Sierra Leone in Benin City on November 13.”
Nigeria pipped Tunisia 1-0 to finish third at the 2019 AFCON.


They also lead their qualifying group for next AFCON in Cameroon in 2022.
