CAF gives US$500000 to each African team that Qualified for #Russia2018

"At the meeting, it was decided that the Confederation of Africa Football will grant a financial subsidy of $500,000 (Five Hundred Thousand dollars) to each of the five African teams".

CAF will also provide Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Senegal and Nigeria, a 'Fieldwiz ' which is the technological tool used to analyze the performance of football teams as well as for physical measurements.

In 2014, Ghana's government sent $3 million on a chartered plane to Brazil during the tournament to pay players ahead of their final group game.

No African team has gone beyond the quarterfinals.

The federation made the announcement on Friday, the same day that the world football governing body FIFA is due to conduct a draw for the group stage of the event that will be hosted by Russia.

Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi is heading a special committee set up by CAF give the African teams to the World Cup total support. The Super Eagles recently beat them by 4 - 2 in a friendly.

Rather unsurprisingly, Nigeria have been drawn in Group D - the same group as South American giants Argentina for the third consecutive World Cup, and a fourth time in five World Cups since 2002.

The draw has seen African team Morocco falling in the same group A together with Euro2016 champs Portugal, Spain and Iran. They will also have to deal with the home fans when they face hosts Russian Federation.

In Group H, Senegal seems to have a quiet group as well.
