Super Eagles Paid $63,000 Appearance Fees for Uganda Friendly


Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa underwrote the expenses associated with the November 20 international friendly game between Nigeria and Uganda inside the Stephen Keshi stadium in Asaba, which ended on a barren note.

Newsmen scooped from those who should know at the Glasshouse in Abuja, Thursday that each Super Eagles player got $3,000 as appearance fees, whihc is what the federation pays for participating in international friendly games, culminating into $63,000 for the 21 players invited for the game.

Interestingly, Governor Okowa settled the bills incurred by the Ugandans and all other payments associated their trip to Asaba for the game in line with what was agreed between the Uganda FA and their Nigerian counterparts, NFF before the game was played in the Delta State capital.

Not much was divulged to newsmen about what the coaches and backroom staff got for the Uganda friendly, although it is obvious that Governor Okowa would have shared the joy to them in the spirt of true sportsmanship.
