Super Eagles miss out on big financial rewards and prime properties
While the pain of leaving the tournament has yet to ease, the Super Eagles have also missed out on the huge financial rewards promised to the team during their botched campaign.
The Nigerian side had become the most favored wife of the corporations who rushed to motivate the national team with monetary incentives and prime land holdings.
The latest to join the trend was RevolutionPlus Property whose Group Managing Director Bamidele Onalaja promised the team N1million per goal throughout the AFCON 2021 Round of 16.
In a pre-Tunisia game video call with Musa, he also said that each team member (players and officials) will be given one pitch each in any location they choose (Lagos, Abuja, Abeokuta , Port Harcourt, Ibadan).
Meanwhile, Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa had confirmed receipt of N4 million pledged to the team for their wins over Liberia and Cape Verde in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers The team scored 4 goals in the two matches.
RevolutionPlus Property became the official property partner of the Super Eagles in June 2021 and since then the organization has run active campaigns in support of the Super Eagles, NFF and other national teams.
It will be recalled that in a video released by the Football Federation of Nigeria media team on Thursday, Central Bank Governor Godwin Emefiele at the Eagles camp in Garoua said the national team would receive the Naira equivalent of $50,000 for each goal scored. in each match won in the CAN knockout phase.
Emefiele announced that he was delivering the message on behalf of the Coalition Against COVID-19 (CACOVID), which is an amalgamation of major private sector players.
The body was initially set up to help the government fight the coronavirus pandemic, but Emefiele said with the joy the Super Eagles are giving Nigerians with their AFCON performance, it was seen as good to further motivate the team.
