World Cup: Germany, Belgium players to earn twice as Super Eagles

FIFA World Cup

The Super Eagles will reportedly receive about 50 percent less than their Germany and Belgium counterparts should they win the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

According to a treaty signed between the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the players in November, each will get around $15,000 per victory in the group stage.

Though, that figure will rise at every round of the competition, amounting between $150,000 to $20,000.

But in stark contrast, the German football federation (DFB) announced that each player will pocket a mouth-watering 350,000 euros (around $420,000) should they retain the World Cup.

Each player was paid 300,000 euros when they beat Argentina 1-0 at the final of Brazil 2014.

A further breakdown shows that each player will get 75,000 euros when they reach the quarterfinals.

They will get an additional 125,000 euros when they get to the semi-finals and another 200,000 euros-a-man should they be beaten in the final.

Belgium, similarly, have reached an agreement in principle with the players to pay each of them 500,000 euros (about $600,000) should they go all the way to win the World Cup in Russia next year.

However, this bonus is performance-based, meaning you would have played all the games on the way to the country winning the World Cup to get 500,000 euros.
