The players’ bonus pot represents a significant increase on the £215,000 they were offered to win the World Cup in Russia four years ago and brings England into line with the other leading nations.
Brazil offer the most generous bonuses, which are largely funded by their £30m-a-year kit deal with Nike, with England’s prize pot similar to those offered by top European countries such as Germany and Belgium.
In addition, England’s top players stand to gain lucrative bonuses from their sponsors if they have a successful tournament.
