Half-million dollar WC carrot for Germany

Dec 13, 2017 - 1:00 PM Germany's players will each receive a 350,000 euro ($540,000) bonus if the team defends their World Cup title next year in Russia.

The German football federation says it has agreed to a performance-related bonus system for the team, as it did for the successful 2014 World Cup campaign and the last two European Championships.

Bonuses will only be paid upon reaching the quarter-finals, when each player would receive 75,000 euros. That will increase to 125,000 euros for reaching the semi-finals, 150,000 euros for third place and 200,000 euros for reaching the final.

Only Italy (1934 and 1938) and Brazil (1958 and 1962) have won back-to-back World Cup titles.
