Super Eagles Players Get Paltry $400 For Their Outing in Egypt

I don’t know whether to laugh or to say that this is a right reward for their poor outing in Egypt. But the point is, if this coninues, is it not going to kill their spirit or morale of playing for their country, if they get paid such paltry sum for their efforts?

It has been revealed that each player of the Super Eagles received $400 as allowances from cash-strapped Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for their trip to Alexandria, Egypt.

This was far short of $1,000 each player usually received as allowances for an away game.

It was further gathered that for the 1-1 home draw in Kaduna, the players were paid in Naira the equivalent of $2,500.

This is a massive drop for some of these players who at the last World Cup in Brazil were on $10,000-a-man.
“Most of the players were unhappy with how they were treated as everyone was for himself after the match in Egypt,” another source informed AfricanFootball.com.
