Former Arsenal and Chelsea stars in Nigeria's most valuable starting XI worth N99.3billionPublished: October 14, 2021
Transfermarkt has revealed Nigeria's most valuable starting lineup with nine current Super Eagles players making the cut.
Allnigeriasoccer.com has opted for a 3-5-2 formation, the system deployed by manager Gernot Rohr during Nigeria's last international match against Central African Republic.
The combined valuation of the starting lineup is worth €208.50m (approximately N99.3 billion in Nigerian currency)
In the hypothetical starting XI, Sparta Rotterdam youngster Maduka Okoye who is valued at €1m starts in goal.
Former Arsenal U23 skipper Semi Ajayi (€6m) is part of a three-man defence also containing Kevin Akpoguma (€5m) and Chidozie Awaziem (€5m).
Ex-Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses (€6.5m), Hale End Academy product Alex Iwobi (€22m) and another ex-Gunner in the shape of Kelechi Nwakali (€1m), plus Wilfred Ndidi (€60m) and Samuel Chukwueze (€20m) make up the midfield.
Nigeria's joint most expensive player at €60m, Napoli's Victor Osimhen and Racing Genk's goal machine Paul Onuachu (€22m) lead the attack.
Of the players named in the hypothetical starting lineup, only three Osimhen, Awaziem and Okoye started for the Super Eagles against Central African Republic last weekend.
