Should Ezenwa make the Super Eagles train to Russia, Enyimba is guaranteed to share in the booty from FIFA as compensation for releasing their players to represent their national teams at the 2018 World Cup.
As the only home based player in the Gernot Rohr team, Ezenwa who is also the captain of CHAN Eagles, will benefit from participating in Russia.
Starting from June 1, 2018, which is two weeks before the opening match between host Russia and Saudi Arabia, the payment clock will start ticking for Enyimba and will stop the day after Super Eagles’ elimination from the tournament.
In 2014, Bayern Munich ,the leading Club in world champions Germany’s squad , were the highest recipient earning $1,734,367 ahead of Spain’s Real Madrid who got over $40,000 for coming second at the championship hosted by Brazil. A total of 736 players will play at the world cup in Russia.
