Visiting Qatar for World Cup ‘once in a lifetime experience’: US envoy

With the start of the World Cup in Qatar 2022, 32 teams are competing to win the tournament, although the nominations are directed toward specific teams.

In the midst of this competition, many numbers stand out, foremost among which are the prices of the players and the value of the teams, which boast that they have the most expensive players.

However, the proven fact remains, which is that the team that holds the title of the most expensive in the World Cup does not necessarily have to be the winner of the World Cup title.

According to research by the Swiss-based International Center for Sports Studies, England's 26-man squad is worth around 1.5 billion euros ($1.54 billion) in terms of transfer market value, as 19-year-old Jude Bellingham, for example, is valued at 202 million euros.

Borussia Dortmund's Judd cemented his reputation as one of the best young players in the world with a stunning goal in England's 6-2 victory over Iran at the start of their tournament.

Brazil ranks second on the list with a value of €1.45 billion. Real Madrid striker Vinicius Junior is the most valuable player, at around 200 million euros.

France took third place with a value of 1.34 billion euros for its team. Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe is the most valuable player in the team at €185m.

Spain (1.2 billion euros) comes in fourth

Portugal (1.15 billion euros) is in fifth place.

Germany (1.02 billion euros) is in sixth place.

Lionel Messi's colleagues in the Argentine national team occupy the seventh place with a market value of 633 million euros, then the Netherlands with a value of 587 million euros, Belgium ninth with a value of 563 million euros, then Uruguay tenth (449 million).

And in positions from 11 to 20 are the teams of Croatia, Serbia, Denmark, Senegal, Switzerland, America, Poland, Morocco, Ghana, and Canada, with a market value ranging between 377 and 187 million euros.

And in positions from 21 to 32 and last, the teams of Mexico, South Korea, Wales, Cameroon, Japan, Ecuador, Tunisia, Iran, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Costa Rica, and finally Qatar, the owner of the land, come with market values ranging between 176 and 14 million euros.

The research compared more than 2,000 player transfers from clubs in the five major European leagues between July 2012 and November 2021.

The total value of all teams in the World Cup has been set at 15 billion euros.

The insurance values

According to an analysis conducted by Lloyd's Insurance in London with the support of the Center for Economics and Business Research, the teams were ranked based on the collective insurance value of the players.

The England national team also topped the list with an estimated value of 3.17 billion pounds ($3.74 billion).

The French national team (2.66 billion pounds) ranked second.

Brazil (2.56 billion pounds) is in third place.

Billingham was ranked as the highest player in terms of insurance value, followed by Mbappe and Vinicius Junior.
