The FIFA World Cup 2022 has been a crazy journey in which many teams with a poor football history have outperformed the big teams, thanks to the great matches played by the players whose good performances are not only beneficial for their countries, but also for their local clubs.
Writer Varun Bay said, in an article published by "Sports Keda", that "FIFA" pays about 10 thousand pounds every day to local clubs as long as one of its players competes in the World Cup.
Below are the five clubs that have received the most money from FIFA due to the presence of their players at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

Liverpool ($1.8 million)
It is certain that Liverpool will be happy with the 2022 FIFA World Cup, as many of its stars got the rest they needed, despite the absence of the Egyptian Mohamed Salah and the Scottish Andy Robertson due to their team’s failure to qualify for the World Cup, while Roberto Firmino and Thiago Alcantara were not chosen. Missed by their two countries, Luis Diaz with a long-term injury, nonetheless the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Jordan Henderson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Darwin Nunez, Alisson Fabinho and a few others made their way to Qatar.
And with the arrival of Brazil, England and the Netherlands to the quarter-finals, Liverpool earned $ 1.8 million from FIFA, and Ibrahima Konate continued to represent France until the final of the tournament, which means an increase in Liverpool’s financial outcome.
Tottenham Hotspur ($ 2.4 million)
Tottenham Hotspur has a group of players representing their countries in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and many of them have done a good job and played great matches, as Hugo Lloris led France to another FIFA World Cup final, and he met fellow Argentine Christian Romero in the final that was decided by teammates Messi penalty shootout.
And with players Ivan Perisic, Harry Kane, Eric Dier, Richarlison and Son Heung with their national teams until the advanced stage of the World Cup, Tottenham Hotspur earned $ 2.4 million thanks to the presence of its players in the World Cup.

Manchester United ($2.65 million)
Manchester United will receive $2.6 million from FIFA. Many of its stars performed well at the tournament in Qatar;
Where Harry Maguire played a pivotal role in England reaching the quarter-finals, his teammates in the heart of defense Raphael Varane (France) and Lisandro Martinez (Argentina) reached the finals of the FIFA World Cup.
Meanwhile, Casimir and Anthony (Brazil), Bruno Fernandes and Diogo Dalot (Portugal) helped their countries reach the quarter-finals.
And the "Red Devils" could have earned huge sums of money had they not terminated Cristiano Ronaldo's contract just days before the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Chelsea ($ 2.86 million)
Chelsea were a big presence at this year's FIFA World Cup, with Mateo Kovacic reaching the semi-finals with Croatia while Thiago Silva, in what was likely his last World Cup tournament, led Brazil to the quarter-finals.
England's Connor Gallagher, Mason Mount and Raheem Sterling were part of the Three Lions' quarter-final exit, Christian Pulisic was also outstanding, while Kai Havertz (Germany) and Edouard Mendy (Senegal) produced mixed performances in the tournament.
However, Hakim Ziyech has been Chelsea's most successful player in the World Cup where a player who has struggled for playing time at Stamford Bridge can get a new chance to shine after his impressive form on the biggest stage in international football;
He scored once and assisted in 6 matches for the Atlas Lions, who lost to France in the semi-finals.
In general, Chelsea earned $ 2.86 million in the World Cup, a figure that could have been higher had it not been for the absence of some of its stars such as Favona and Ben Chilwal due to various injuries.
Manchester City ($4 million)
Manchester City have received $4m from FIFA so far, with the Premier League champions heavily represented at the 2022 World Cup.
Julian Alvarez was certainly one of the superstars for Argentina to reach the finals, having scored 4 times in 5 matches in his first FIFA World Cup finals, Ederson played just once for Brazil who reached the quarter-finals, and so did England with Kyle Walker. And John Stones, while Portugal, which includes the city trio Bernardo Silva, Joao Cancelo and Robin Dias, crashed in the quarter-finals.
