FIFA advance 2M USD payment to Africa’s World Cup quintuple
The five nations that are set to represent African in the 2018 World Cup in Russia will receive a 2M USD payment in advance ahead of their participation in the competition.
Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Nigeria and Senegal are the five teams that will partake in the world’s most prestigious tournament in June 2018. The quintet have been drawn in Groups A, G, B, D and H respectively.
The decision was taken after negotiations between CAF president Ahmad Ahmad and FIFA administration that resulted in an agreement to forward the amount to the five sides.
“This agreement, for an advance on the financial allocation by FIFA, aims to allow representatives in World Cups to have a harmonious preparation and to settle beforehand the question of bonuses due the players, which in the previous editions of the competitions has led to situations that affected badly the image of African football, with a considerable impact on team performances,” Ahmad said.
