With SAFA having guaranteed the players R520,000 each for reaching the last eight of the AFCON in Egypt, the R11m that they have now secured will come in handy after a solid 1-0 victory over the hosts in Cairo on Saturday.
Just by reaching the finals, SAFA were always going to pick up $475,000 in prize money, while going on to win it – though still a long way away – would be worth a whopping $4,000,000.
As previously reported, the breakdown for the Bafana player bonuses is as follows:
 R320 000 for reaching the last 16
 R520 000 for the quarter-finals
 R670 000 for the semi-finals
 R920 000 for winning the tournament
Now it’s over to Bafana to try and get a result against Nigeria on Wednesday night and reach an AFCON semifinal for the first time since the 2000 AFCON, a result that would subsequently land $1.5m (over R21m) for the association.

Football can be amazing really. Sifiso Hlanti was very average to poor for the first three Bafana games, then stepped up to put Mo Salah (one of the best in the world right now) on his back pocket for the whole 90 minutes -Football can kill you real death
