A kick for gender. Revolution in Ireland, in the world of football, in relation to the salaries set aside for men and women in the respective national teams. For the first time, players representing the senior women’s and men’s teams of the Republic of Ireland will receive the same match bonus at the international level as a ‘deal in the Irish sport’.

The new salary will take effect soon, and players will receive a 500 500 increase when Ireland face Portugal at Estadio Algarve on Wednesday. Prior to Ireland, England, Brazil, Australia, Norway and New Zealand were among the countries that publicly pledged to pay both male and female players in international competitions.

Everton defender Seamus Coleman said: “We are delighted to have helped the Irish players make the deal possible:” We are happy to do everything we can to ensure that our international players receive justice.
