For reaching the last eight of the 2019 AFCON in Egypt after a 1-0 victory over Egypt on Saturday in Cairo, each player had a guaranteed R520,000.

Here’s the breakdown of the bonus payment plan as guaranteed by the South African Football Association;

– R320 000 for reaching the last 16
– R520 000 for the quarter-finals
– R670 000 for the semi-finals
– R920 000 for winning the tournament

They however couldn’t hit the R670,000 jackpot, as their journey in the 2019 AFCON was cut short by the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
