The FA have disclosed that England's men's and women's internationals now receive equal pay.

Since January this year, the Lionesses have been paid the same match fees and match bonuses as their male counterparts - equating to £1,500 per player if England win a game, a fee which the men have long since donated to charity.

It is a small pay rise for the women and a progressive step from the FA, who have followed the likes of Brazil, Australia, New Zealand and Norway in paying their men and women the same.

England women have also received central contracts from the FA since 2009, and those deals were restructured two years ago so top players can earn up to £30,000, on top of their club salaries.

However, there remains a huge gender disparity in the overall earnings of England's international players
