Ghana's government has flown over £1.8 million in cash to Brazil to pay the money it owed to the Ghanaian World Cup squad in appearance fees.
Initially, the Ghanaian Football Association wanted an advance on the $8 they would have received from FIFA. FIFA stated that the request for an advance was "under evaluation".
The Ghanaian team were already guaranteed $8 million as World Cup prize money for simply competing in the group stage and could have received a maximum of $35 for winning the whole tournament.
However, it appears the government has stepped in to pay what the players were owed.
The rush over over paying the cash was forced by rumours the Ghanaian squad would boycott their final game against Portugal - a game Ghana must win to progress to the next round.
However, Chelsea and Ghana winger Christian Atsu dispelled fears that the Black Stars would fail to turn up: "We are not going to say we are not going to play because of the money," Atsu said. "We love our nation and we are going to play for our nation."
A statement from the Ghana Football Association said: "The government is pre-financing the payment of the Black Stars appearance fees, which will be reimbursed when Fifa's prize money for Ghana's participation in the World Cup is paid."
