Each Ghana player will earn US$ 25,000 for finishing runners-up at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, President John Mahama announced on Tuesday.

The Black Stars came close to winning a fifth continental title but missed out to Ivory Coast who triumphed 9-8 on penalties in Sunday’s final played in Bata.

Ghana were on the brink of early elimination at the tournament when they lost their opening Group C match to Senegal.
