FIFA pays £6,370 per World Cup player on a daily basis with the NPFL having a sole representative in Russia in Enyimba goal minder Ikechukwu Ezenwa.
According to Vexcash, the NPFL was ranked 48th among the various leagues entitled to FIFA’s World Cup money with the sum of £178,300.
Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr had initially named three NPFL in a 30-man provisional squad before the 64-year-old tactician dropped Kano Pillars goal machine Junior Lokosa and Plateau United goalkeeper Dele Ajiboye from the final squad.
