Nigeria had the most valuable squad at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, and rightly so reached the final under Jose Peseiro but lost 2-1 to the host nation Ivory Coast.

The Eagles have played four games since the end of AFCON, drew one, lost two and won only one against neighbours Ghana, their first victory in the Jollof derby in 18 heats, according to Trt Afrika.

The four games have been in the absence of star forward Victor Osimhen, who missed both international windows due to injuries, with which he played at the AFCON.

This has culminated in seeing a massive drop in the combined market value of the Super Eagles team. According to the latest release by Transfermarkt, the three-time African champions are worth a combined €252.50 million (₦414 billion).

Osimhen is the most valuable African star, with a market value of €100mil. Victor Boniface and Ademola Lookman led the team as the top two with a market value of €40mil each.

The team’s value may continue to take a dip as the Napoli striker is unlikely to return to the team soon after his emotional outburst on social media has led to calls to drop him until he apologises.
