Nigeria vs Algeria: Akwa Ibom State Gov promises Super Eagles $10,000 If They Win
“The Governor has made us a promise of $10,000 for every unreplied goal against Algeria,” a top official disclosed to AfricanFootball.
Governor Emmanuel had donated N10million to the Eagles, after they defeated Tanzania 1-0 in September.
The cash reward was later converted to camp allowances by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) .
Nigeria will be seeking to extend their lead at the top of the African qualifying Group B, when they host Algeria on Saturday.
The Super Eagles defeated Zambia 2-1 in Ndola in the first round of fixtures, while Algeria were held to a 1-1 draw by Cameroon.
