    If the Super Falcons win this Afcon, then the prize money should be shared among the players. At least, let them get like $15k each from the $500k winners prize. They are the ones on the pitch, putting their bodies on the line. They should be adequately compensated. In addition to the $15k, the government and other high networth individuals can also feel free to declare cash gifts, or other valuable gifts.
