AFCON 2019: Each Nigerian player has bagged $72000 in bonuses so far

AFCON 2019: Each Nigerian player has bagged $72000 in bonuses so far

Naim Sliti added a third in injury time to send Tunisia through to a semi-final showdown with Sadio Mane's Senegal, with the Carthage Eagles into the last four for the first time since clinching their only title when they hosted the 2004 edition.

Egypt have been in support of the Super Eagles since they crashed out earlier in the championship and Iwobi has this to say: "They are insane with the team". The victory earned them $10,000 each.

Abuja - Mutiu Adepoju, ex- Super Eagles player, has urged the national football squad to sustain the team spirit in camp as they move closer towards lifting the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.

Algeria's defence ministry told AFP news agency that six additional military planes would be deployed to shuttle supporters for the final if the team progresses.

Algeria beat Nigeria twice, including 1-0 in the final, to lift the trophy in Algiers in 1990 to follow on from the likes of Lakhdar Belloumi and Salah Assad, who helped put the country on the footballing map a few years earlier.

Interestingly, more dollars will be showered on them, if they will score more goals in the must win semi-final clash with Algeria.

Dangote promised $50,000 per goal, while Otedola pledged the sum of $25,000 for each goal scored. "They were different players", recalled Belmadi.

Barcelona sign Griezmann from Atletico for 120m euros
Spain's Barcelona signed French star Antoine Griezmann from their La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid on Friday. Contacted by AFP on Saturday, the club refused to comment.

Consequently, the Super Eagles have everything going for them as far as motivation is concerned but they have a huge task before them in Cairo as the Desert Foxes stand between them and a place in the finals.

Nigeria's Super Eagles now have even more incentive to pick up the scoring as they advance in AFCON 2019.

The Eagles were beaten 2-0 by the Barea at Alexandria Stadium in their last Group B encounter nearly two weeks ago.

"All we had in our mind was winning the game and we are glad to do that at the end of the day".

"We have a good team but the players need to play with more determination". They won thanks to a late goal by William Troost-Ekong to get $15,000.

"It is not possible to stroll to any continental title".

"Algeria have some great individual players like Riyad Mahrez, who can hurt you, but we only have to focus on ourselves and we will be good", he said.
