Arsenal's German stars on huge World Cup bonus money

Germany's stars are on massive money to win the World Cup next summer.

Arsenal's Mesut Ozil, Lukas Podolski and Per Mertesacker will take home £250,000 if Germany win the World Cup.

The German Football Federation have laid down a plan to reward their big names in Brazil.

Captain Philipp Lahm and the rest of the players - including Chelsea's Andre Schurrle - quickly agreed to the same incentive scheme that was in place for last year's European Championship in Poland and Ukraine.

The cash kicks in after the second round, with each player receiving £42,000 for reaching the quarter-finals, £84,000 for reaching the semis and £145,000 for the final - doubled if successful.

DFB general secretary Helmut Sandrock said: "The national team wants sporting success in Brazil.

"And if they're successful there, it should also be rewarded accordingly."
