Super Eagles players get $345,000 bonus after Iceland win

The Super Eagles of Nigeria will be laughing all the way to the bank after defeating Iceland 2-0 on Friday in the 2018 FIFA World Cup taking place in Russia.

 


A second-half brace from Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa earned the Super Eagles their first points of the competition and earned the 23-man squad a whopping $345,000.

 

Initially, each player of the Super Eagles was due $10,000 for a win at the tournament but the Nigerian federal government increased the win bonus to $15,000 to motivate them to win their remaining Group D matches after they lost to Croatia in their opening game Saturday.

 

“The federal government is doing its best to ensure that the Super Eagles excel in Russia.
