The France squad have agreed to forfeit bonuses due to them on the back of the 2010 World Cup.
Those players involved in a shambolic showing from Les Bleus in South Africa have waived their right to three million euros (£2.6m) worth of rewards.
The issue of what would happen with the bonuses has rumbled on for some time, but French Football Federation president Fernand Duchaussoy has revealed ahead of Wednesday's friendly date with England that the money will be pumped back into the game.
He said: "There has been lots of erroneous information coming out but last night (Monday) we met with the players to put things right.
"The players have confirmed that they are willing to give up any bonuses from partners and sponsors from the World Cup and the warm-up games which amounts to the sum of three million euros.
"This amount will be given in its entirety to grass-roots and amateur football in France.
"I would say that the subject is now closed and we can now concentrate on this fantastic game at Wembley tomorrow night."
Among those to have forfeited their bonus is Barcelona full-back Eric Abidal, who was dropped from the squad in the wake of a disappointing showing at the World Cup.
He has, however, been drafted back into the fold for the showdown with England and is confident lessons have been learnt from France's exploits in South Africa.
"I am very happy to be chosen, it has been an aim of mine for some time," he said.
"I have worked extra hard with Barcelona to increase my chances of being brought back.
"I still have personal goals I want to achieve. I still want to play in big games. I have those with my club in the Champions League but want to be involved in them for my country as well.
"It is a very different, a new manager (Laurent Blanc). It seems a bit different and at 31 I have a few more games under my belt than the other guys in the squad."
Abidal added: "After the World Cup I did think about things a lot.
"It was tough for all of us but that page has been turned and it is a case of looking to the future.
"In football you make wrong choices. We maybe made some wrong choices in the World Cup. But, when you suffer failure, you learn a lot from those failures."
