Ghana Earn US$ 575,000 From CHAN

Ghana earned a total of US$ 575,000 for winning silver at the 2014 African Nations Championship which ended on Saturday in South Africa.

The amount includes US$ 400,000 for finishing runners-up at the tournament and US$ 175,000 for advancing from the Group stage of the competition.

Ghana, playing in their second final in three editions, were beaten 4-3 on penalties by Libya.

It was sweet revenge for the Mediterranean Knights who lost 7-6 on penalties to the Black Stars 32 years ago in the Africa Cup of Nations final.

Ghana reached the final of the maiden edition of the CHAN tournament hosted by Ivory Coast in 2009 but lost 2-0 to DR Congo.
