Brazil's football association (CBF) has announced it will pay the women's and men's football teams equally.

It means all players will be granted the same daily and prize amounts for taking part in preparation periods and games.

It will also be applied to the teams participating in the Olympics next year as well as the next World Cup tournaments.

CBF president Rogerio Caboclo says the measures were put in place earlier this year.
"Since March of this year, CBF has made an equal value in terms of prizes and daily rates between men's and women's football," Caboclo said.
"That is, the players earn the same thing as the players during the calls. What they receive by daily call, women also receive.
"What they will gain by conquering or by staging the Olympics next year will be the same as the men will have.
"What men will receive at the next World Cup will be proportionally equal to what is proposed by FIFA.
"There is no more gender difference, as the CBF is treating men and women equally."

 "It will be proportionally the same as what Fifa proposes for women, that is to say, there will be no more gender difference in remuneration between men and women."

Australia, Norway and New Zealand are among the nations to previously decide to pay their men and women international teams the same amount.

The World Cup-winning USA team sued their federation last year, alleging discrimination over pay and conditions.

The team appealed earlier this year after a judge dismissed their case and it continued a long-running feud with US Soccer.
