The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has confirmed that the players of the national team will not receive any special bonus in the two-legged World Cup play-off against Ethiopia.
Aminu Maigari, president of the NFF, told SuperSport that the players will be paid the “usual $5,000″ win bonus for the two matches.
“There are no issues at all. We have been in contact with the players and coaches and no one has any problem with what we pay as bonus.
“The players were paid $5,000 after the last World Cup qualifying game against Malawi in Calabar and no one complained.
“It’s about honour, patriotism and the collective zeal to see that Nigeria’s flag is hoisted at the gathering of elite football nations in Brazil next year.
“Money is the last thing on anyone’s mind right now because they are top professionals who know what it means to represent their country.”
