Top 10 most valuable national teams in world football

These teams have lots of players with high market value

According to Transfermarkt, England’s current national team roster as of March 2023 is the most lucrative, with Jude Bellingham leading a list of more than 800 football players in terms of their transfer value.

The 26-man English team is valued at just under 1.1 billion euros in terms of transfer price, with 19-year-old Bellingham assessed at 202 million euros ($207.4m), according to a report by the Swiss research organisation CIES Football Observatory.

There are other nations that have been also ranked most valuable national teams, below are the 10 top most expensive football national teams.

10. Netherlands: 412m

The development and widespread adoption of complete football may be attributed in large part to the Netherlands. The idea was created by renowned Dutch coach Rinus Michels, and it was subsequently popularised by Johan Cruyff. According to the dynamics of the game, each player is required to play in any given position in the total football system.

Despite making a significant contribution to the history of football with this idea, the Netherlands has never claimed the FIFA World Cup. In 1974, 1978, and 2010, their finest efforts resulted in them winning the runners-up medal. Moreover, they have only achieved one victory at the European Championship, in 1988.

9. Belgium: 511m

The golden period of Belgian football is now in effect. The European country has never been short in attacking flair because of its wealth of elite players such as Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, and Eden Hazard. Any defender would have been terrified by the Belgian onslaught in the late 2010s.

The third-place finish Belgium earned in 2018 was the nation’s greatest result at a FIFA World Cup. They haven’t yet won the World Cup or the European Championship. Having said that, they have still produced some incredible athletes. The majority of the players in their starting lineup play for elite European clubs, making Belgium one of the most valued teams.

8 Italy: 615m

One of the most prominent clubs in football, Italy have just one less World Cup victory than all-time record-holder Brazil despite having won the tournament a record four times. Even though they won the Euro 2020, they failed to qualify for the World Cup in consecutive years. The Azzuri are regarded as one of the most valued football teams and have produced a number of excellent players throughout the years.

7 Germany: 622m

One of the football world’s powerhouses is the German national team. Four times, Die Mannschaft have claimed the FIFA World Cup (1954, 1974, 1990, and 2014). Additionally, they won the European Championship three times (1972, 1980, and 1996).

The team of Hansi Flick is still a formidable opponent. They have gone 13 games without a loss under his tutelage. Germany’s team is worth €818 million as a whole thanks to stars like Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Leroy Sane, and Serge Gnabry.

6. Brazil: 703m

The Brazilian national team is unsurpassed when it regards to possessing a wealth of skill. The South American country has produced several players who are rated highly throughout time. Brazil’s team is currently worth €703 million. Some of the most expensive and valuable players in the world right now are Neymar, Vinicius Jr., Richarlison, Lucas Paqueta, Raphinha, and Antony.

5. Spain: 806m

Spain are sixth on the list of most costly teams with a combined total of €1.201 billion. The 2010 FIFA World Cup champions were eliminated in the quarterfinals in Russia four years prior, and then by Morocco in the quarterfinals of the 2022 World Cup, which resulted to Luis Enrique’s dismissal, as Spain appointed Luis de la Fuenteas their new head coach.

Spain’s most valued player at the moment is Barcelona‘s 19-year-old midfield master Pedri. With three goals in 19 appearances in all competitions, Pedri, who is estimated at €158 million, has been a constant in Xavi’s squad this season. June 2026 marks the end of his current contract with Barcelona.

4. Argentina: 859m

Three-time world winners Argentina are the fourth most expensive team at the national scale, valued at €859 million. The most well-known player for La Albiceleste is undoubtedly seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi, although CIES does not rate him as the most valuable. With a price tag of €99 million, Lautaro Martinez of Inter Milan is now the most expensive footballer in the nation.

3. Portugal: 910m
