The Nigeria Super Eagles eliminated a major distraction, heading into their final group stage match in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, when they finally received their wages from their country’s football federation, payments that the players said were more than three weeks late, according to They also received the bonuses they were owed from their first two Group B matches, both 1-0 wins over Burundi and Guinea. But even with their bank accounts looking healthier, Nigeria’s German coach, Gernot Rohr, has warned his players against overlooking Madagascar, who could take over the top spot in the group heading into the knockout stage in the match that will live stream from Egypt.
