Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama treated his teammates to dinner on Friday in Cairo ahead of a crucial tie against Senegal in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.

Dressed in white shirts and khaki pants, the players looked relaxed as they enjoyed their meal after their heroics against Taifa Stars of Tanzania.

Football Kenya Federation president Nick Mwendwa is also working hard to ensure the players are motivated ahead of the match and it emerged that the team will now bag Sh250,000 for every win in the tournament.

It is reported that each player earned around Sh900,000 for qualifying for the tournament courtesy of a pledge by Deputy President William Ruto.

According to Mwendwa, the players have also pocketed Sh750,000 as allowance for being part of the training camp in France.

Kenya face Senegal on Monday and a win or draw will give them an excellent chance of progressing to the next round depending on results in other groups.

They currently sit third in Group C behind leaders Algeria and Senegal.

Following a brace against Tanzania, forward Michael Olunga is one of the top scorers in the tournament together with Uganda’s Michael Okwi and Benin’s Mickael Pote.
