Nigeria WinThe Super Eagles have been paid their bonus of $25,000 each for beating Burkina Faso to win the AFCON title in South Africa.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) could not come up with the cash to pay the team after they won the continental tournament on February 10th in the Soccer City Stadium, Johannesburg courtesy of a Sunday Mba goal.

It was speculated that this payment could well have been possible after the NFF received the payment of the cash prize of $1.5 million from CAF for winning the competition.

However, a source disclosed that the Eagles were paid the bonus on Friday before their crucial World Cup qualifying tie against Kenya last Saturday.

“It’s true that the players have received their match-bonus of $25,000 for beating Burkina Faso in the final game of 2014 AFCON” the source stated “But contrary to the report that they got the money on Sunday, all of them were settled on Friday- a day before the game against Kenya.”
