ENGLAND stars will share a staggering £13million bonus if they bring home the World Cup.
Huge increased incentives are on offer for the Three Lions if they were to stun the favourites and win football’s biggest trophy since 1966.
The players even could even land huge individual pots with victory on Qatar.
Along with their winners medals, England stars will bag individual pots of £500k each in win bonuses, according to the Mail.
This is a huge increase from the last World Cup in 2018, when England got to the semi-finals in Russia, and the players stood to earn £215,000.
In total, incentives total as much as £13m after the FA more than doubled the size of the players’ bonus pot from the 2018 World Cup.
As Sunsport revealed last month, the manager Gareth Southgate meanwhile will collect a £3m bonus if he followed in Alf Ramsey’s footsteps and made England World Champions.
This would come on top of the ex-Middlesbrough boss’s £3m wages.
The big hike in bonuses pulls England closer to their international rivals who offered far bigger win bonuses than the Three Lions in 2018.
That is helped by the country’s huge £30m-a-year sponsorship deal with Nike.
The World Cup kicks off today as the hosts Qatar take on Ecuador.
England are in action a day later with the other big beasts beginning their tournaments after.
According to Betfair, Brazil, France and Argentina are the favourites for the tournament.
Spain rank fourth favourites according to the bookies, England fifth, while Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium follow as others who could challenge for the Jules Rimet trophy.
