Polish soccer's governing body, the PZPN, has announced it will pay the country's national team zł.500,000 for each match it wins at this summer's Euro 2012 championships. The team will receive half this sum for every game it draws during the tournament.
If the team actually wins the championships then €3.75 million will be split between the 23-man squad and team manager Franciszek Smuda, reported Gazeta Wyborcza.
In comparison, Germany's players have been promised €7 million, nearly twice as much as the Polish players, if they win the tournament.
Poland's first game is on June 8, when they take on Greece in the opening match of Euro 2012 at Warsaw's National Stadium.
