Nigeria U-23 team have been rewarded with a cash gift of ₦4 million by Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, following their 4-0 win over Libya on Monday evening.
The team were trailing the Libyans 2-0 from the first leg last week and needed a resounding win to qualify.
Musa promised to pay N1million per goal scored if they can bounce back.
The match, which was played at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, is the second leg of a qualification round for the U-23 Africa Cup of Nations.
The second leg game, which was watched by a handful of spectators, saw the Libyan team putting up a defensive play right from the first blast of the whistle.
However, the Nigerian team took total control of the midfield, as they mounted sustained attacks on the Libyan defence.
Victor Osimhen grabbed a hat-trick and laid on the assist for the last goal, as the U-23 Eagles marched to victory with 4-0 win over Libya.
Former Media Officer of the senior Eagles, Colin Udoh, has confirmed that the former Leicester City winger has sent the money.
“JUST IN. @NGSuperEagles captain @Ahmedmusa718 has fulfilled his promise of a million naira for every goal scored by the U23 Eagles.
“He has sent N4 Million to the team for the 4-0 win over Libya this evening in Asaba #AfconU23Q #Team9jaStrong,” Udoh tweeted.
