Liberia President George Weah has rewarded each player of the Super Eagles with a cash gift of $2,000 for honouring a friendly to retire his Lone Star No. 14 jersey.
Goals from Simeon Nwankwo and Henry Onyekuru gave Nigeria a 2-1 win over their hosts in a game the 51-year-old Weah played for 79 minutes.
It was learned that Weah, who won the 1995 World Footballer of the Year Award, was delighted that Nigeria presented a strong side for the game played on Tuesday night at the Samuel Kanyon Doe Stadium in Monrovia, the country’s capital.
“We were paid $2,000 each by the President of Liberia,” one of the players informed SCORENigeria.
