Again, "fringe" players never whine to represent their national team. Pride goes before anything, friendly or WC. Star players OTOH always ask for more money.
So it's not about make ends meet, it's about motivation.

Giroud was crying when he heard he was called up for the NT (this is a guy that didn't make it through regular academies). Guys like Anelka or others take it for granted and don't care.
Which one of the two would play for free? The super rich Anelka or the young up and coming Giroud?
