R60 000 bonus for Bafana players in World Cup qualifier with Senegal

Posted: 7 November 2017 Time: 16:45

Stuart Baxter's Bafana Bafana players will each pocket R60 000 should they beat Senegal in a crucial World Cup qualifier on Friday.

South Africa will entertain the Teranga Lions at Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane before contesting the return match in Dakar next week Tuesday.

When FIFA ordered the replay of Bafana's initial meeting with Senegal - after the referee Joseph Lamptey was found guilty of match-fixing - the world footballing body agreed to incure the costs of hosting the match.

KickOff.com has been informed Baxter's men will receive the standard bonus of R60 000 for a win and R30 000 for a draw.

Bafana must win both Group D games to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
