CAIRO: The Egyptian FA will pay each of Egypt s players around LE 2 million if they defeat Algeria and qualify for the World Cup, according to president Samir Zaher.

A victory by a three-goal margin for the Pharaohs will see them reach the World Cup due to a better goal difference.

Even though a large bonus should act as an extra motive, Zaher stressed the African champions are only preoccupied with the match, and don t really care about incentives.

They couldn t care less about money, they just want to secure a World Cup berth, he told

The bonus hasn t been determined yet, but I promise that each player will be paid at least LE 2 million if they go though.

Egypt and Algeria will clash on Nov. 14 at Cairo Stadium.
