LYON, France (Reuters) - When Lucy Bronze kicked off her professional career at Everton, her earnings were all-but wiped out by the cost of being a footballer.

Bronze did not care about the money, though.

She just wanted to play football.

“When I first signed a contract with a women’s team, my contract stated that if I played I would get 100 pounds and if I didn’t play it would be zero,” Bronze told Reuters in an interview.

A self-described aggressive and hardworking defender, the 27-year-old says she is now enjoying the “house and the car” in Lyon, where she hopes the Lionesses will play the semi-finals and the final of the sport’s top event.

“If you got injured you got zero, it was crazy.” But Bronze wanted just one thing after years of practice on the streets with her brother, and growing up with parents who did not watch football, let alone play it.

Obviously they watch it now, they watch me, but my dad can’t play football, he’s terrible and my mum’s the same,” she recalled.
