Victorious Super Eagles of Nigeria on Sunday got some of their outstanding payments immediately after their 2-1 win in Zambia in Ndola.
The players received their flight ticket refunds, match bonus for the AFCON qualifier against Tanzania last month as well as appearance fees for two friendlies in May against Mali and Luxembourg.
It is estimated that a player who was involved in all three matches would have received close to $8,000.
The win bonus for yesterday’s World Cup qualifier in Ndola is now the only outstanding for the Eagles.
On November 12, Nigeria will welcome Algeria to Uyo in continuation of the World Cup qualifying series.
