"Aliko has told me to tell you... for every goal that you scored, once you scored 10 goals, you get $500,000. If you score one goal it's $50,000. Femi Otedola, too, I have called him, $25,000 for every goal scored. So whether they (Algeria) reply or no reply, just keep scoring. 

"It is not about the monetary value, which is also very important, it is about the zeal that we have demonstrated in achieving the appreciable success we have achieved so far in the tournament.
