Ahead of the semi-final clash with Algeria, Africa’s richest man Aliko Dangote has promised the Super Eagles $50,000 (N18 million) for every goal scored at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Another Nigerian billionaire, Femi Otedola also made a similar pledge to the team that they will get $25,000 (N9 million), totalling around N27m.
The President of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, disclosed this to the team during a breakfast meeting on Thursday in Cairo, Egypt, while congratulating them for their victory against South Africa.
Odion Ighalo currently leads the way for goals with three so far.
