The Super Eagles are the twentieth most expensive team that will participate in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, according to transfer market experts transfermarkt.co.uk.

Super Eagles

Nigeria, who have a squad size of 23, are valued at 80.78 million pounds (approximately N38.45 billion in Nigerian currency).

Brazil currently have the most expensive squad (£606.15m), followed by Germany (£572.85m), France (£572.85m), Spain (£543.15m) and Argentina (£475.65m).

Senegal, who have in their ranks Liverpool’s Sadio Mané and Monaco winger Keita Baldé lead the way in Africa with a market value of £195.89m, ahead of Morocco (£88.56m), Nigeria, Egypt (£76.05m) and Tunisia (£28.04m).

Our other rivals at the World Cup Croatia and Iceland occupy the eighth (£265.28m) and twenty-second (£56.12m) positions respectively.

It should be noted that the Super Eagles would have ranked higher than 20th but Nigeria’s most valuable player, Chelsea’s Victor Moses who is valued at £16.20m, was omitted from the players rated because he missed the games against Argentina and Algeria.
