Ghana earn US$ 575,000 from CHAN

Published on: 01 February 2014
Ghana squad at the CHAN tournament.

Ghana earned a total of US$ 575,000 for winning silver at the 2014 African Nations Championship which ended on Saturday in South Africa.

The amount includes US$ 400,000 for finishing runners-up at the tournament and US$ 175,000 for advancing from the Group stage of the competition.

Ghana, playing in their second final in three editions, were beaten 4-3 on penalties by Libya.

It was sweet revenge for the Mediterranean Knights who lost 7-6 on penalties to the Black Stars 32 years ago in the Africa Cup of Nations final.

Ghana reached the final of the maiden edition of the CHAN tournament hosted by Ivory Coast in 2009 but lost 2-0 to DR Congo.

    Egypt has never won a world cup game and was humiliated Six - One to Ghana ahahahhahahaah Congratulations to us. In June the top footballing nations will be at the world cup and there will be no Egypt. :) :) :) I bet most of you here have never seen your nation play in a world cup quarter final. Only in minor irrelevant tournaments with corrupted refs and conditions.

    In the world cup the 32 best footballing nations will be there. Will Egypt be there? no. They have not been there for almost 30 years. In fact Ghana has performed better at the world cup than all North African nations combined. :) Steal these minor event while we focus on the big picture. :)

    Egypts world cup dream: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMCEGMm0bo0 We sent Aboutrika into retirement with zero world cup appearances. The same applies to all those alleged Egyptian legends.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghana_national_football_team#Team_honours When will Egypt show up to the world cup. Even if Egypt hosted the world cup the country will find a way to not qualify. :) Ghana is the biggest team in Africa. Not Egypt. A team that has never won a world cup game cannot be called a big team.

    Apart from winning 7 cups what has Egypt done? Nothing. You can't even win a world cup game. not even one. This is not a big team and it never will be a big team. :)

    Egypt has never won a world cup game. If the first time you heard of Ghana was the 2006 then the Education system in Egypt is very bad. :) Egypt is not known world wide as a footballing nation. Ghana is. Unless one is thirty five or above they won't remember seeing Egypt in a world cup

    Stop crying like big babies you Ghana-men. Th cup has long bound for Tripoli Libya. Dr Congo remain proudly the only Sub-Saharan(Black)Nation to lift that trophy!!. Sorry for Ghana but it's now well over 35 years with ZERO cup, ZERO trophy and you say you're a footballing Nation????.. No quiet.But we will support the BS to go for glory in Brazil. Good luck.
