Ethiopians promised cash to win Afcon



Ethiopia's players have been promised more than $100 000 each if they win the African Cup of Nations on the country's return to the tournament after a 30-year absence.

Ethiopian Football Federation president Sahilu Gebremariam said Wednesday the players would get $111 000 each to win the Cup and $55 000 to make the final in South Africa.

Sahilu said coach Sewnet Bishaw and his assistant coach would be rewarded with "significantly higher prize money" if the team progresses to the final.

Ethiopia won the Cup of Nations in 1962 but last qualified for the final tournament in 1982. It was drawn alongside tough opposition in Ghana, Mali and Congo in 2013 and is not expected to get out of the group.

Coach Sewnet said "it's football, there is room for anything, any surprise."
