FIFA to pay Super Eagles N5.6bn for World Cup qualification

Nigeria’s football national team, Super Eagles will receive €12.2m (N5.6bn) from FIFA if they qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup later this year.

The competition which will feature teams from 32 countries, will be taking place from November 21 to December 18.

If the Super Eagles team defeats the Blacks Stars of Ghana, this would be their seventh World Cup appearance. The first leg is billed for the Baba Yara Stadium on Friday (today) March 25, while the second leg holds in Abuja on Tuesday March 29.

FIFA recently increased the qualifying bonus from €10m to €12.2m to help teams that qualify for the tournament to prepare well.

When the Nigerian team qualified for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, they received €10m from FIFA.
