Joe Hart's expected competitive debut for England in Friday's Euro 2012 qualifier with Bulgaria at Wembley will benefit Shrewsbury by half a million pounds.Hart was named as first choice for last month's friendly with Hungary and looks certain to retain his place.It will mean the Shrews receiving a huge financial windfall from Manchester City as part of the deal when they bought Hart.Hart told Press Association Sport: "I think I am right in thinking Shrewsbury get half a million if I play on Friday."That will be huge for the club. Last time when I played in the friendly, they thought they were getting it but it has to be a competitive game."It is huge money for a team like that and I am pleased for them, although there is only one player left from my time there. Everyone else has gone."
