As qualified teams continue to gear up for the Qatar 2022 Word Cup, the World soccer ruling body has announced an increment in the prize money for the winner of the competition.
France which clinched the cup in 2018 got $38 million as the prize money but FIFA on Monday afternoon announced $42 million as the cash prize.
32 teams have been drawn into 8 groups of 4 and will compete for the most coveted trophy in World football.
According to the report from Zurich, $440 million will be the total cash in Qatar as against the $358 million that was spent in 2018 in Russia.
Nigeria’s Super Eagles will not be among the team vying for the honour in Qatar after they crashed out to the Black Stars of Ghana in the playoffs round of the qualifier.
