Home-based Eagles have been promised a match bonus of 200,000 Naira each for beating Benin 2-0 today to qualify for CHAN 2018 in Kenya.
They reportedly lost $2,000-a-man when they lost 1-0 in Cotonou last week.
An official told SCORENigeria: “The boys are down because they have been promised a paltry 200,000 Naira as match bonus.
“They have given their account details to the team administrator and in the new week they will get their cash, hopefully.”
Officials claimed the poor finances of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) necessitated the delay in these payments.
In the meantime, the team were hosted tonight by Kano State Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
