Each Black Stars player will take home $5000 as a winning bonus following their win against Ethiopia.

Ghana national team recorded a slim 1-0 win against the Walia Ibexes at the Cape Coast Stadium in their 2022 World Cup qualifiers opener.

Mubarak Wakaso's 35th-minute goal banged all three points for the Black Stars.

The team were criticized by many despite the win.
However, the Black Stars suffered a painful defeat in their second fixture against South Africa at the FNB Stadium having conceded a heartbreaking 83rd-minute goal netted by Bongokhule Hlongwane which has propelled them to the top spot.

The playing body will have to return to their respective clubs this weekend and will pocket $5000 each as their bonus for the triumph over Ethiopia with the technical team likely to receive a double of the amount.

However, Ethiopia recorded a late win over Zimbabwe last Tuesday in Addis Ababa tieing them up with Ghana on three points each, with the Bafana Bafana's claiming top spot in Group G with six points.

The Black Stars will host the Warriors of Zimbabwe next month in their next fixture, with the return encounter set to be honoured in Harare in a few days time.

The Black Stars are seeking to return to the global showpiece having missed out on the last edition in 2018 in Russia.
