BONUS PAYMENTS: INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL's Paul Nicholson wrote "bonuses to its national team players and officials has begun for the World Cup already." But while there is a will to pay, "there may not be a way with the current budget for the 2014 tournament." The "current proposal" is for players to be paid $10,000 per win in the group stages, $12,000 in the round of 16, $15,000 in the quarterfinals, $20,000 in the semifinals and $30,000 for winning the final. The "total win bonus each player would receive if Nigeria win" the World Cup would be $100,000. Coach Stephen Keshi will get $20,000 "while his assistants will each receive" $15,000. Players also receive a $200 "per day daily camp allowance." Currently "the expected shortfall on the budget" could be as much as $5M (INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL, 3/12).
