ENGLAND men’s and women’s senior players have been paid the same match fee for representing their country since January 2020, the Football Association has announced.

Brazil on Wednesday joined Australia, Norway and New Zealand on the list of football associations who had publicly committed to paying their men and women players the same amount for earning a senior cap.

But the FA had already implemented pay equality, meaning players representing the Lionesses receive the same match fee as those turning out for Gareth Southgate’s men’s side.
