The CHAN Eagles stand to receive N90million for their second place finish at the tournament which ended in Morocco on Sunday.

The Nigerian side finished behind Morocco, after suffering a 4-0 spanking at the hands of the hosts and being first runners up, they will get $750,000 as prize money from CAF, with the NFF promising to give them 30% of the sum.

This is besides the match bonuses they have received for going all the way to the championship game in Morocco.

Meanwhile, Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, who watched the team live in Casablanca, praised the commitment of the team against all the odds and said his government will host them to a befitting reception on their return to Nigeria on Tuesday.

The Nigerian delegation is due to land in Lagos early Tuesday morning via a direct Air Maroc flight from Casablanca.
