According to AS, every Portuguese player pocketed a whopping €275 000 (R4.4 million) for lifting the trophy in France.

In addition, they also received other expense allowances during the tournament to take their overall bonus payment to €300 000 (R5.25 million) a player.

This means, overall, the Portuguese FA has splashed out €6.9 million (R110 million) for the 23 players in manager Fernando Santos' squad.

The massive bonuses were apparently negotiated between the captains around Ronaldo and the Portuguese Football Federation ahead of Euro 2016.

Portugal won its first major international title after beating France 1-0 in extra-time, courtesy of a goal by Guinea Bissau-born Eder.

Sad what football has become. Passion gone. You have to pay heavily for players to represent the country well.

Soccer Laduma has abused the word "reveal" a lot. I wonder if the editor is aware. It is now even boring. Can't you use "tell" at least? Tired of this reputation.
