Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi has revealed the Black Stars have pledged to deliver a resounding victory against Egypt to reciprocate the increased winning bonus.
The Black Stars have had their regular bonuses paid for winning matches doubled by headline sponsors GNPC.
The increment is to give the team an added incentive to recording a massive result against the record African Cup winners in the first leg of the 2014 World Cup playoff tie on October 15.
Nyantakyi says the players in return to the immense pledged incentive to deliver a ‘splendid’ performance in Kumasi to give Ghana a commanding lead ahead of the return encounter.
“The management and board of GNPC have agreed to top up the bonus of the team to serve as extra incentive for the players ahead of the game against Egypt,” Nyantakyi said.
“The players have acknowledged this gesture and they are very appreciative of it.
“They have also promised that they will reciprocate by putting up a splendid performance during the match and record a convincing score line to make the second leg a mere formality.”
