Nigeria’s football national team, the Super Eagles, will receive €12.2m (₦5.6bn) from FIFA if they qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup later this year.
The competition which will feature teams from 32 countries, will be taking place from November 21 to December 18. If the Super Eagles team defeats the Blacks Stars of Ghana, this would be their seventh World Cup appearance.
The Super Eagles held Ghana to a goalless in the first leg on Friday at the Baba Yara Stadium and are already geared up for the reverse fixture in Abuja on Tuesday, March 29.
FIFA recently increased the qualifying bonus from €10m to €12.2m to help teams that qualify for the tournament prepare adequately. When the Nigerian team qualified for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, they received €10m from FIFA.
