Sarina Wiegman’s squad are aiming to go big and win this year’s World Cup.
FIFA will not pay the prize money directly to individual associations such as the English FA as they did before.
Now each squad member will receive a specific amount depending on what stage they reach during the tournament.
However, the prize money is still a lot less than the men who take home £313m.
