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.

    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. :)

    We sent Aboutrika into retirement with zero world cup appearances. The same applies to all those alleged Egyptian legends.
