Georgia’s oligarch, Bidzina Ivanishvili, has promised the national team $10million, following their 2-0 win over Portugal in Euro 2024 on Wednesday night.

The result saw them qualify for the last 16 of Euro 2024 on their debut.

Willy Sagnol’s men progressed from Group F as one of the four best third-placed finishers.

They will now play Spain, who won all their group games, in the Round of 16 on Sunday.

The ruling Georgian Dream party’s “honorary chairman Bidzina Ivanishvili will award Georgia’s football team 30 million lari ($10.7 million) for qualifying for the last 16 of Euro 2024,” the party said in a statement.

“An additional 30 million lari will be awarded in case of a win over Spain,” it added.
