Each Ghana player received $35 000 after qualifying for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinals, officials said on Tuesday.

"The bonuses have been paid," confirmed Ghana team manager Emmanuel Kyeremeh.

"Had they failed to qualify for the quarterfinals, they would not have received anything," he added.

Four-time champions Ghana topped Group B with seven points from three matches and Mali finished runners-up on four points.

The Black Stars face Cape Verde on Saturday in the first quarterfinal at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in this Indian Ocean city.
