In the money

If you want to be rich on July 4, join Denmark and win the European Championship. If successful, the Danes will be rewarded with 310,000 euros each. Sweden is the team playing simply for pleasure – there is no monetary incentive for the players to shine. Latvia is still negotiating with a sponsoring bank, but Portuguese, Spanish and Italian players all hope for a windfall of 200,000 euros each. Defending champions France are paying their team 230,000 euros each to repeat the triumph of four years ago.
