Zambian offered cash incentive to retain their AFCON title

Posted On Monday, 21st January 2013

Zambia players celebrate victory over Ivory Coast in 2012 CAN final

The Africa Cup of Nations  reigning champions Zambia opened their campaign today with the promise of a cash bonus from their country’s president if they made the final and a 4.5 times that bonus if they bring the trophy home again.

Unfortunately for the Zambians they started slowly and could only manage a 1-1 draw against 10-man Ethiopia in their opening match.

President Michael Sata visited the team at their training camp in Nelspruit and issued a goodwill message to the team, ahead of the finals, saying: “I have never doubted your passion for the game, courage to overcome and desire to be champions. I know your determination to win and I believe in your abilities.”

It was reported in the Zambia Daily Mail that the players will each receive $20,000 if they get to the final and $90,000 if they retain the cup.

The players each received $59,000 each for winning the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.

Zambia face Nigeria and Burkina Faso in their remaining Group games.

    I checked the country’s budget and the would go bankrupt ïf they let go that sum. They know cheap polo polo can’t win so they made that fake promise. The country got cash strapped last year anf are not ready to loose $90000 over some young guys kicking some rubber around

  3. Zambia is out toilet hole says:

    Zambia is soccerly bankrupt.They have nothing at all only bosting of a one time lucky plus juju win.they cant continue to drink human blood so the are revealed to the world how poor they are .I never want to compare them with Ghana at all because what we have achieved is really second to none in Africa football and if they are blind to praise us the world does so.Now see,All the quality players Zambia has are what they have paraded.On Ghana’s side,we have great players in world football who are even not with the squad.apart from Gyan,Ananand pantsil ,the rest are young crop of players we are introducing because we don’t play teams like Zambia with Essien,Boateng,Muntari,Dede and Jordan Ayew,Nana Kwasi Asare,John Mensah,Owus Abeyie and you name them hahahaha,I have already given you another team.We just waste tarlents if we should invite such players to only play but Zambia and teams like this.Anyway Ghana Mali are going to proceed to the next stage.Ethiopia Nigeria will proceed to the next stage for group c.Zambia out because Nigeria will dismantle Zambia 3:0

    • Papa says:

      @Toilet Hole, it takes a thief to catch a thief. If you are sure that Zambia uses juju, then you must also be a sorcerer and wizard. Go back to your stinking toilet hole you shit head.

    • zio says:

      the reason why most people here insult zambia is because they are actually scared of the country. simply shows that the country has improved in its football but that’s hard to swallow by some ghanaians. Give credit when its due! just as we will give u credit when you win. no matter how many “stars” and professionals are in your team, football is about winning…thats where the glory lies. i reckon you dont just want to watch your team play well, you want them to win. its like being in university for 25years and never graduating! look at the stats, i would understand if egyptians were passing such comments because they have won it so many times unlike you… you werent even born when your country won their last cup

  4. muyu- says:

    Ghana, we dont refuse to reconise what you have done. you have done quite a lot especially at world cup representing the whole of Africa. the problem is that dont rely on past glory and stop accusing us of having used juju and drinking human blood or won it by luck. how mwny accusation at a goal?when everyone heard what yo previous coach of European origin said. too much juju and thats why he resigned

  5. Ghana wil never win Afcon says:

    Ethiopa has done what Ghana has failed in two matches.

  6. Chipolopolo says:

    If Ethiopia can manage a draw with Zambia, then Ghana is rily worse than Ethiopia for bein walloped two times even with the so called Ayews in the team

  7. zambia is a shit hole! says:

    No amount of moni can motivate dis useless copper bullet…ast year luck was pn ur side dis year hahahaha is way different.u are goin back to bantuland after da first round. If ur government think u can mk uy dey would hv offerrd u a high winnin bonus..ahahahaha dey know final n da cup is a dream.u will da wounded super eagles..

  8. zambia is our toilet hole says:

    BREAKING NEWS,,,CAN ANYBODY TELL ME FOR WHAT REASON A HUMAN BEING WILL MATE WITH CHICKEN AND EVEN RESULTING IN DEATH?

    NO WHERE THAN IN ZAMBIA .I TOLD YOU THOSE ARE ANIMALS NOT HUMAN BECAUSE ONLY ANIMALS MATE WITH OTHER ANIMALS.OH MY GOD,WE ARE PLAYING SOCCER WITH ANIMALS.BELOVED ONES,,,JUST COPY AND PASTE THIS LINK TO TELL ME THAT I AM UNTRUTHFUL.
