For winning the Nations League ahead of Spain this year, UEFA will award France €14 million which is equivalent to 6,646,640,000 (Six billion, six hundred and forty-six thousand, six hundred and forty) in Naira.

According to Bolavip, the top European football governing body would also compensate Spain for losing the UEFA Nations League final to France by paying €9 million in compensation.

In the final at San Siro on Sunday evening, France defeated Spain 2-1. Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe scored the goals that helped France defeat Spain, as Mikel Oyarzabal's attempt was insufficient.

However, in the weekend's third/fourth place match, Italy defeated Belgium 2-1 to take third place. For finishing third, Italy will receive €8 million from UEFA, while Belgium will receive €7 million for finishing fourth.

The competition primarily replaces previous international friendly matchups on the FIFA International Match Calendar with more competitive fixtures. The competition is regarded by UEFA as a prominent competition. The Nations League 2020-21 is the tournament's second season.

Portugal had won the inaugural 2019 finals and was the previous champion. After coming second in their group behind France, they were unable to qualify for the 2021 finals.
