    The side collected $127,000 each after defeating Argentina in their quarter final.

    Should they defeat Italy on Tuesday, they will receive a further $191,600 as a reward for reaching the final.

    A massive $383,300 is on offer to each player should they win their fourth World Cup on home soil.

    That figure is more than three times the amount ($117,500) that was offered as an incentive to win the final in 2002 which they lost to Brazil 2-0.

    Will it make the difference?
