Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria, Tunisia and Senegal will represent Africa at the tournament in Russia, which kicks off on 14 June.

The Pharaohs and superstar Mohamed Salah were drawn in Group A alongside hosts Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay. Their coach Hector Cuper reportedly pockets £1.3 million (R21.7 million) annually, according to the Daily Mirror, who cited Dutch media and entertainment company Zoomin.

Morocco's Herve Renard, whose men will face Portugal, Spain and Iran in Group B, is believed to earn half of Cuper's salary, taking home £681 000 (R11.4 million) annually.

The third highest earner among the African teams' coaches is Nigeria's Gernot Rohr. The Super Eagles were the first African side to qualify for the tournament, and have been drawn in one of the toughest groups alongside with Argentina, Iceland and Croatia. The 64-year-old reportedly earns £436 600 (R7.3 million) a year.

Tunisia were drawn in Group G with Belgium, England and Panama, and their coach, Nabil Maaloul, apparently pockets £305 500 (R5.1 million) annually.

Senegal's Lions of Teranga, who qualified from South Africa's qualification group, will face Poland, Colombia and Japan in their group. Their head coach, Aliou Cisse, was part of the country's famous 2002 generation as a player, and he is reportedly earning £174 500 (R2.9 million) a year as coach.
