The Nigeria Football Federation have promised each player of the Flying Eagles the sum of $5,000(five thousand dollars) each for qualifying Nigeria to the FIFA U20 World Cup in Indonesia.
NPFL Updates revealed this development from a report by ScoreNigeria.
The Flying Eagles booked their passage to the U20 World Cup when they won Uganda 1-0 in the quarterfinal of the U20 AFCON in Egypt.
On Monday night, the Junior Eagles failed in their quest to stay on course for a record-extending eighth title when they lost 1-0 to Gambia in the semifinal of the U20 AFCON.
They will now face Tunisia in a third-place match Friday in Cairo.
The draw for the U20 World Cup scheduled for May will be staged on March 31.
