CAF AFCON champions Cameroon are outsiders at the tournament, and lost their opening game against Chile 2-0. Manager Hugo Broos selected a fairly young side and their highest valued player is Vincent Aboubakar, at €10 million (R14 million), but he only sits in 41st position in the ranking.

He is followed by Chile superstar Alexis Sanchez, with €65 million (R931 million), and Portugal's Bernardo Silva, who recently signed for Manchester City and is valued at €40 million (R573 million).

Arturo Vidal (Chile) and Julian Draxler (Germany), both valued at €35 million (R501 million), complete the top five.

Shkodran Mustafi (Germany), with a €30 million (R430 million) valuation, is in in sixth spot, ahead of Portugal's William Carvalho with €28 million (R401 million) and his teammate Adrien Silva with €25 million (R358 million).
