At the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Korean national team players who dramatically succeeded in advancing to the round of 16 will receive a reward of 100 million won per person.
Korea, led by coach Paulo Bento, won 2-1 against Portugal in the third group match of Group H held at the Education City Stadium in Arrayyan, Qatar on the 3rd.
With a record of 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss, Korea tied with Uruguay, but took second place in the group ahead in terms of points, achieving a splendid achievement in the World Cup round of 16 12 years after the 2010 South Africa tournament.
Taegeuk warriors who impressed the nation also received a hefty reward.

Players who entered the final entry for the finals will receive a basic reward of 20 million won each and receive 30 million won for a win and 10 million won for a draw in each game.
Therefore, as a result of the group stage, a bonus of 60 million won was secured with a basic reward of 20 million won and 40 million won for 1 win and 1 draw.
In addition, each player was given a reward of 100 million won for advancing to the round of 16, and if they defeat ‘Samba Soccer’ Brazil in the round of 16, the amount of reward per player will increase to 200 million won.
