Equatorial Guinea - Libya coach Marcos Paqueta considers it a compliment to his team that 2012 Africa Cup of Nations rivals Equatorial Guinea have been offered one million dollars to beat them.
The Group A teams clash on Saturday at the 35 000-seat Estadio de Bata in the opening match of the three-week tournament, with the co-hosts promised a huge cash 'bait' to triumph plus $20 000 for every goal they score.
"This is a great motivation for us – it proves that we have earned respect. I feel our opponents will play to win and that suits us," said the man behind the fairytale qualification of the Mediterranean Knights.
