Meanwhile the Nigerian team has been promised a lot of gifts for their successes.
For every goal, the team will receive $20,000, which means they have banked $120,000 so far.
In the Round of 16, every goal will earn for the team $50,000.
The gifts were announced by Godwin Emefiele, Governor of CBN, who visited the team on Wednesday in Garoua, along with NFF president Amaju Pinnick.
The money is coming from a group of Nigeria’s billionaires, who worked together to assist Government in combating COVID-19 pandemic.
Emefiele also delivered the message of Femi Otedola and Aliko Dangote that huge rewards await the team if they win the trophy.
Otedola has already pledged $250,000 or the Naira equivalent.
