The website of the Brazilian TV channel “Globo” has published photos and a video of the $3m being delivered to the #Ghana players in Brasilia.
They broadcast footage of the money being transported in a huge convoy of police cars. The appearance money was owed to the players and promised to them before the #WorldCup.
Earlier in the week, there were rumours the Black Stars could boycott training ahead of the game if their demand for payment was not met.
As unrest grew, Ghana President John Dramani Mahama personally assured the players that they would receive their money.
The Ghana coach claims the money had to be delivered in cash because many of the players do not have bank accounts based in Ghana.
Shortly after the arrival of the entourage, the players began to drive to one of the hotel rooms to withdraw the money owed by the federation. Some kept the amount in the pocket or wrapped in pieces of clothing. Others left with the wad of bills in his hand. The estimate is that the award of each athlete is $ 100 thousand.
