One of the best teams in the world is Germany's national team. In total, Die Mannschaft has won four FIFA World Cups. Additionally, they have won the European Championship three times. However, Germany's performance has dropped off in recent years, as evidenced by its current position in the FIFA rankings at number 11. They were eliminated by eventual champions England in the round of 16 at Euro 2020 after also failing to advance past the group stage at the 2018 World Cup.
Yet Hansi Flick's supporters are still formidable. They've gone 13 games without losing while he's been coaching. Germany's roster is worth a combined €818 million thanks to the presence of stars like Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Leroy Sane, and Serge Gnabry.

4. France - €910 million

Currently, Les Blues boast some of the finest footballers in the world. Kylian Mbappe is one of the most important players in international sports. The forward for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is worth €160 million at the moment (as per Transfermrkt). In addition to Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann, the current French squad also features Aurelien Tchouameni, Christopher Nkunku, and others. The current French national team roster is worth almost €910 million.

The Brazilian national team cannot be surpassed when considering highly talented teams. The South American country has churned out numerous valuable athletes over the years. The current market value of Brazil's national team is €1.1 billion. In addition to Neymar and Vinicius Jr., other high-priced and highly valued players include Richarlison, Lucas Paqueta, Raphinha, and Antony.
Brazil has one of the deepest squads of the 32 teams competing in Qatar. It remains to be seen, however, if coach Tite can rally the group of stars at his disposal to help the Selecao win their sixth world championship.

There is a €72 million price tag on both Declan Rice and Trent Alexander-Arnold. The top players in terms of price tag are Harry Kane, Jude Bellingham, and Phil Foden, who are all worth €81 million.
Raheem Sterling, Jack Grealish, Mason Mount, and Reece James are some highly valued English players. On September 23 and 26, respectively, Gareth Southgate's squad will play Italy and Germany in the UEFA Nations League.
