Spain to receive more bonuses for World Cup glory

Spain players will get more than double their Brazilian and German counterparts would receive if they retain their crown at this summer’s World Cup. Captain Iker Casillas and vice-captain Xavi have agreed a deal with Jorge Perez, the secretary general of the Spanish football federation, regarding the bonuses the players will receive.

The winning country will receive €27 million, a 37% increase on Fifa’s prize money in 2010, and the players will be given 20% more in bonuses than they received four years ago.

Each player and member of the technical staff will be €720,000 richer if they become the first ever country to win the World Cup twice in a row, while Brazil players will each get €330,000 if they win it and the Germans would receive €300,000.
