Billionaires Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola have both promised the Super Eagles $75,000 for every goal scored in their remaining matches at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.
While Dangote made a pledge of $50,000 to the team for every goal in their remaining two matches at the championship, Otedola promised $25,000 for every goal.
This is coming after the Eagles’ impressive performance against South Africa at the quarter-final of the competition.
The game, played Wednesday night, saw Eagles shoot down the Bafana Bafana 2-1 to advance to the semi-finals of AFCON 2019.
The two businessmen made the promise on Thursday, according to a statement by the Nigeria Football Federation.
