The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, president, Amaju Pinick has vowed to reward Super Eagles a gift of 10 million naira to any player who acquires up to 100 caps for the men’s national football team.
He made this statement as the team prepared for their game away to Cape Verde on Tuesday which they eventually won with team captain, Ahmed Musa reaching the 100 caps mark.
Only two players, Vincent Enyeama and Joseph Yobo have reached this feat playing for the Super Eagles, an achievement Pinnick termed as ‘not an easy feat’.
He said, “trust me, it is not an easy feat, but on behalf of Nigeria Football Federation, from today, once you mark 100 caps you’ll get 1o million naira. Ahmed Musa will get 10 million naira once he gets to Nigeria.
“As we are getting to Nigeria, I’ll call Air Peace and you’ll get that your money (20 million naira).
“I will ensure this because you have made me very proud, you have made the country very proud. The country needed this at this time.”
