The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has opted to pay players and officials of the Super Eagles full match bonus for Monday’s crunchy 2018 FIFA World Cup encounter against Cameroon in Yaounde.
In a statement from the NFF, the players and officials will receive their full match bonuses even though the tie in Yaounde ended in a draw.
The statement noted that NFF President Amaju Pinnick made this known to the team on board an aircraft that flew the Nigerian delegation back from Yaounde on Tuesday morning.
It noted that excited players and officials applauded as Pinnick insisted that it was just reward for masterclass output by the Nigerian squad over the two legs of the most anticipated fixture of Group B.
The member of CAF Executive Committee also said that preparations for next month’s big encounter against Chipolopolo of Zambia had started in earnest.
