South Africa’s players pocketed R520 000 after reaching the quarter-finals following their 1-0 win over hosts Egypt, as Safa president Danny Jordaan confirmed the agreed bonus structure in Cairo last week.

The amount would have risen to R670 000, if Stuart Baxter’s men had beaten Nigeria to reach the tournament’s semi-finals for the first time since 2000.

The Super Eagles, meanwhile, have now earned around R674 000 per player already, as per Nigerian journalist Osasu Obayiuwana, who published the Nigerian bonus structure ahead of the tournament.

After speaking to Nigerian Football Federation vice-chairman Shehu Dikko, Obayiuwana tweeted the following breakdown:

The team have earned R142 000 for both group stage wins plus another R178 000 for their victory over Cameroon in the last 16. The 2-1 win over Bafana in the quarter-final earned them another R212 000.

Overall, they have pocketed R674 000 so far, but could get another R245 000, if they would would reach their first final since 2003.
