Nigerian players have proven a point and that has beguiled the attention of two of Nigeria’s most talked about billionaires, Dangote & Otedola.
Business moguls Dangote & Otedola have promised $75,000 for every goal scored by the Super Eagles ahead of their semi finals clash against Algeria.
The Super Eagles of Nigeria trashed South Africa in their quarter final clash on Wednesday night.
This was made possible with goals from Samuel Chukwueze and William Troost-Ekong, booking a semi-final spot with one of the tournament’s favourites, Algeria.
President of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick confirmed the kind gesture from the business moguls at the team’s base in Cairo on Thursday.
Dangote promised $50,000 per goal, while his colleague billionaire Otedola pledged the sum of $25,000 for each goal scored.
