The government of Ghana has doubled the Black Stars winning bonus to Ksh 1million ahead of tonight’s Afcon 2019 qualifying match against Kenya.
Both teams have qualified for the 32nd edition of the flagship Caf tournament set for Egypt in June/July.
Bonuses is a sensitive issue in Ghanaian football, during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the government had to charter a private jet to deliver the players hard cash as they threatened to give a walkover.
Ghana and Kenya will be locking horns competitively for the second time, the first encounter was the first leg of the match played last year in Kenya which Kenya won 1-0.
The Group F game will kick-off at 9.00pm Kenyan time at Accra Sports Stadium, in Accra – Ghana.
Kenya top the group on 7 points, 4 off second placed Ghana.
