Former Arsenal and Chelsea stars in Nigeria's most valuable starting XI worth N99.3billion
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.
