The Super Eagles of Nigeria are set to receive a sum of N5.6 billion (€12.2 million) from the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) if they beat Black Stars of Ghana in the return fixture of the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers.
The Super Eagles were held to a goalless draw by Ghana in the first leg of their qualifying match which held in Kumasi, Ghana on Friday 25th of March 2022.
The winner of this fixture will proceed to book a place at the 2022 World Cup which will take place in Qatar later this year. According to FIFA, the qualifying bonus for teams has been increased from €10 million to €12.2 million to help the qualified teams prepare well for the tournament.
€12.2 million is an equivalent of N5.6 billon and should Nigeria qualify for the 2022 World Cup by beating Ghana in the return leg holding at MKO Abiola Stadium, Abuja, they will receive the qualifying bonus. Ghana will become the recipient should they beat Nigeria.
The tie is still open as Nigeria were denied a penalty by the VAR at the last minute of the first leg, forcing them to settle for a goalless draw which will make the second leg more difficult to scale.
