Ghana players bag $45, 000 each

Ghana players are taking $ 45,000 each for advancing to the second round of the 2010 World Cup.

“We are maintaining what pertained at the Africa Cup of Nations in Angola where we paid the players only after they moved on from one stage to another instead of paying bonus per match,” Ghana FA Vice President Fred Pappoe told the Graphic Sports.

“The players prefer this incremental bonus module and I think it has the added advantage of linking incentives with progress of teams. We could have paid winning bonus against Serbia and that would have been it. But since the players knew they could get their money only if Ghana progressed they had to work hard for it,” he added.

The players have already been paid US$ 70,000 as an appearance fee at the World Cup.

Ghana meet Uruguay on Friday and a win would create a new record among the African teams, the 1st to play in a World cup semi final.
