Cape Town – A huge cash incentive of R360 000 has been promised to the players of Nigeria for each goal scored against Bafana Bafana in the upcoming 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier.

South Africa welcome the Super Eagles to FNB Stadium on Saturday for their penultimate Group E clash and a win for either side will guarantee them a spot in the tournament held in Cameroon next year.

In order to further motivate the West Africans quest of qualification, the Governor of Delta State Ifeanyi Okowa has pledged a cash bonus to each of the players.

“I am pleased to have the Super Eagles here in Asaba‚” Okowa told the team in front of reporters, as quoted by the SowetanLIVE website.

“We hope you make Asaba your home‚ and as a people we will begin to follow your progress even more closely.

“We appreciate the giant strides Nigerian football is making and commend the leadership of the Nigeria Football Federation for making Delta State part of its success story.

“For every goal scored by the Super Eagles in Johannesburg on Saturday‚ we pledge a reward of US $25‚000. Please don’t put a limit to the number of goals you score on Saturday; try and score as many as possible.”

After four rounds of (of six) matches played, the Super Eagles lead Group E with 9 points, one ahead of South Africa, who have accumulated 8 points from two wins and two draws. 

Libya are in third place with 4 points, followed by the Seychelles on 1 point.

The clash will kick-off at 15:00 (SA time).
