German players cash in on semis

Germany's players have already cashed in on making the semi finals after receiving the biggest World Cup bonus in the country’s history by reaching the top four.

    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?
