Yes footballers get paid for playing for Ireland.
yes, because they may not play, but they still train, but not as often
a year... yes!!! but in a week the highest player gets paid, i think, £200,000 which is bloody loads!!! Lots more than rugby players do but then again rugby players don't play for the money, they play for the passion of playing for club and country, unlike footballers!!!
Yes their countries pay them, some are paid for each goal scored and as they progress as well.
it depends how good you are at football and what your club is. but generally, yes, footballers get paid more than nurses
No, unfortunately the huge wages enjoyed by male footballers is no where near what female footballers are paid. Some male footballers would be on £100,000 a week, women might be getting £500 at best. It is because there is very little money in the women's game.
