usually, players from major countries get a sponsor fee but do not take a direct wage from their f.a for playing internationals. although it varies from a small ammount to up to around £10,000 for high profile players, many footballers traditionally donate match wages to charities. England have a charity set up for players to donate to!

Not directly, but they are paid for expenses and given stipends during tournaments and games. Also important to note, is that playing for the national team is an honor and greatly improves a player's chances at endorsements. I have heard the rumour that everyone on the team that wins the world cup gets approximately $100,000; however, I cannot confirm this.

If you play on the national team you are already well off financially

Yes. They get a portion of the money given to the football association in question: either by the regional international football association, or by sponsors. It is nowhere near the amount they are paid by their clubs and sometimes the players donate their appearance money to charity. This is at the heart of the club v country row, as clubs are obliged to pay their players when they're missing matches through injuries sustained on international duty.

For the England national men's team, the players are paid for playing, but the vast majority of them chose to donate their pay to charity. The women's team are also paid, although far less, but they are not expected to donate their earnings as they are not paid very much from their league teams.

What is the pay of rugby in the US vs rugby in other countries?

The pay depends on the level of Rugby. In the USA the game is amatuer I think so the domestic players are not paid. In the Pro Leagues in Europe for example they are paid less than soccer players with good players getting between 50000 and 100000 pounds a year to play. Extra money comes from sponsorship and a salary cap paid to international players along with any bonuses from club or country.

Which sport is watched more football or basketball?

That is true in a way. In the US basketball is more popular than soccer. That is why basketball players are paid more. In other countries, soccer is more popular so soccer players get paid more. Soccer in the US is becoming increasingly popular. Soon soccer players could be paid as much as basketball players.
