Port Elizabeth - Each Ghana player received $35 000 after qualifying for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals, officials said Tuesday.

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

“Had they failed to qualify for the quarter-finals, 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 Saturday in the first quarter-final at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in this Indian Ocean city.
