World Cup: Super Eagles Get N20.8m Each

Nigeria’s Super Eagles players who qualified the nation  to a fifth World Cup will enjoy a huge largesse from FIFA largesse. Sources said some players will get as much as N20.8m each.
Team officials were also not left out of the largesse with the least getting about $25,000.
But it was further learnt that it was not all plain sailing as there were disagreements particularly as regards whether those who qualified the team for Brazil 2014 should also be part of the appearance fee.
“There was a big issue among the senior players whether those who were part of the qualifiers should also get something. At the end of the day, skipper Joseph Yobo prevailed that they also have to be included,” a team official stated
So, even some players like John Utaka and Raheem Lawal, who played just a couple of qualifiers, will also get something.”
