Uganda President Yoveri Museveni reportedly gave the country’s football team, the Crannes, US$1 milion as reward for their performance at AFCON 2019.

Uganda were knocked out by Senegal courtesy of a 1-0 defeat after they came second in Group A, accordingly reaching the Round of 16 for the first time since 1978.

Museveni hosted the players on their return to Uganda at the country’s State House where he handed over the money, according to The Independent.
