England’s Valuable Squad: Worth £1.2bn at Euro 2024

England have been ranked as the most valuable team at this summer’s European Championships.

Gareth Southgate’s side suffered a demoralising setback in their quest to secure a first major honour in more than half a century as they were defeated by Iceland in their final warm-up on Friday.

However, despite a patchy run of form of late the group represents one of the most talented group of individuals ever seen in an England squad and the stats seem to confirm as much.

With the likes of Jude Bellingham, Phil Foden and Bukayo Saka at his disposal, Southgate posses a group of players with a higher collective value than both defending champions Italy and pre-tournament favourites France.

Across their 26-man squad, England are estimated to have a total value of more than £1.2billion.
