Lionesses 'disappointed' with FA following breakdown of bonus talks

England players are privately disappointed following a breakdown in talks over World Cup bonuses.

Negotiations with the FA have been going on for some time but an agreement that suits the players has not been reached less than three weeks before England's first game

Following a change in FIFA regulations, the players will get paid £24,000 for the group stage, with the prize money increasing during the tournament.

Players will earn £213,000 if they win the competition.

That money comes from the pot allocated to all 32 competing nations by FIFA, which has risen from £23.5m to £87m.

The players are disappointed the FA will not be awarding its own bonuses for success at the tournament.
