CHAN, semi final
Zimbabwe vs. Libya 17.00
Ghana vs. Nigeria 20.30
THE Confederation of African Football (Caf) has revealed the winners of this year’s African Nations Championship will collect US$750,000 [Rwf. 507,700,000 millions].
Caf made the prize money known ahead of last weekend’s quarter-finals of the tournament for home-based players.
The money would be a major boost for any of the last-four teams in South Africa, with even African champions Nigeria struggling financially.
A total of $3.2m will be shared among the 16 participants.
Nigeria’s cash problems have been well documented, with players repeatedly threatening to strike over cuts in their bonus payments.
And Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi went seven months without being paid last year.
Zimbabwe and Libya will bid for a spot in the final of the CAF African Nations Championships when they meet for a semifinal clash on Wednesday evening.
The second semi final will pit Ghana against Nigeria later at night.
