Supplementary notes

The source provides the following information: "FIFA introduced the World Cup Benefits Program to compensate clubs for the injury risk to their players during the World Cup.
The calculations were based on the value per player and per day which the club receives, which is around 7,236 Euro (8,530 U.S. dollars). Whether the player plays in the tournament or not is irrelevant. The players' former clubs from previous seasons also receive up to two-thirds of the sum."
