Afcon Bonuses Revealed, How Much Did Bafana Get?

With the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations now being done and dusted, here is an overview of how much winners Algeria, runners-up Senegal as well as South Africa will receive from Caf's whopping prize pool of R194 million.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see how much money the Afcon top four and Bafana are getting.

The Desert Foxes won the 32nd of the African showpiece after beating the Lions of Teranga 1-0 in Friday’s final.

Djamel Belmadi’s side went unbeaten through the tournament, scoring the most goals and conceding the least.

As a consequence, Algeria will receive the biggest chunk of the $14.2 million (R194 million) prize pool, which was announced by Caf in April – $4.5 million (R63 million) to be exact.
