Rohr lifted by his players and officials after World Cup qualification

SCORENigeria can exclusively reveal that while the players and top team officials will pocket $15,000-a-match win bonus in the first round of the World Cup, coach Gernot Rohr will earn double that amount.

SCORENigeria has further gathered that both Rohr and the rest of the team will be entitled to an additional bonus for advancing to the Round of 16 with the Franco-German coach again getting twice what each player will get.

And a win in the Round of 16 will see Rohr pocket an additional $40,000, while the players and officials are paid $20,000 each.

That will be the template for subsequent rounds of the World Cup should the Eagles make the expected progress at Russia 2018.

Rohr only recently agreed a new two-year contract with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) with president Amaju Pinnick revealing his monthly salary of about $50,000 was also reviewed upwards.

SCORENigeria first broke the story that each player will earn a bonus of $15,000 for a win in the first round of the World Cup, where they are drawn against Argentina, Croatia and Iceland.
