KOLKATA:- The 32 national teams competing at the 2018 World Cup will share $400 million (344 million euros) in prize money, a 12 percent increase from the 2014 tournament, FIFA said Friday. The purse at the previous edition in Brazil was $358 million -- $35 million of which was awarded to champions Germany, with runners-up Argentina pocketing $25 million. By contrast, countries who failed to advance beyond the group stage received $8 million.–AFP
