Euro 2020

How Hungary’s squad valued at just £47.5m compares to £1.2BILLION worth of superstars at France, Germany and Portugal

A GROUP of death and an injury to their best player before the tournament – Hungary are up against it at Euro 2020.

Marco Rossi’s underdog side will be without star man Dominik Szoboszlai when his team plays three semi-finalists from Euro 2016 in Group F.

Cristiano Ronaldo remains the biggest superstar in Group F but his transfer fee has fallen

According to transfermarket, the value of Hungary’s expected first XI for the tournament is a measly £47.5million.

The central European side still have a few notable names in Szoboszlai’s absence including his RB Leipzig team-mate Peter Gulacsi.

But the rest are made up of players from teams in the Hungarian league, the Slovakian first division and even Bristol City in the Championship.

And it is those men that will be tasked with competing against the £1.2BILLION worth of superstars at France, Germany and Portugal.

Here’s the lowdown on the value of each team in Group F…

France – £501.7m

France have been tipped as Euro 2020 favourites with a star-studded group of players

World Cup winner Paul Pogba has shot to global fame since joining Manchester United

The 2018 World Cup winners are out for revenge this summer after just falling short at the last Euros and are armed to the teeth with talent.

France boast an incredible amount of superstars from Real Madrid’s £63m defender Raphael Varane to Manchester United’s £54m Paul Pogba.

But it is PSG ace Kylian Mbappe that really catches the eye with his £144m price-tag worth over THREE times the value of Hungary’s entire team!

Portugal – £398m


United playmaker Bruno Fernandes has displaced Ronaldo as Portugal’s most valuable star

Fernando Santos’ side might be relying on Cristiano Ronaldo to deliver this summer as the country’s highest ever goalscorer.

But the five-time Ballon d’Or winner at 36-years-old is not even in the top five most valuable players in Portugal’s squad.

The top honour falls to United’s main-man Bruno Fernandes at £81m with City trio Bernardo Silva, Ruben Dias and Joao Cancelo all close behind.

Germany – £395m

Germany boast two of Bayern Munich’s brightest young talents in Joshua Kimmich and Serge Gnabry

Chelsea’s Champions League hero Kai Havertz has enjoyed a meteoric rise for his national team

Joachim Low has assembled a blend of experience and young talent for his last tournament in charge of Die Mannschaft.

The Germans do boast the second most valuable player in Group F behind France forward Mbappe.

Joshua Kimmich is worth almost double the price of his Bayern Munich team-mates Manuel Neuer and Thomas Muller together.

Hungary – £47.5m

Hungary are without their most valuable player Dominik Szoboszlai due to injury

As previously mentioned, Rossi faces an uphill task to qualify from Group F with star man Szoboszlai ruled out of the tournament due to injury.

As a result, the £22.5m midfielder’s team-mate for club and country, Willi Orban, becomes Hungary’s most valuable player at £14.4m.

Meanwhile, Gergo Lovrencsics – who plies his trade for Hungarian outfit Ferencvaros – is the least valuable in the group at just £585k.
