I’ve done some research on statistics concerning the World Cup and one fact I find quite interesting is the average height of the teams. I didn’t expect the differences to be that big, also it shows how the game becomes more and more physical. Most countries have a team much taller than their national average to match their physical style of play (Korea, Brasil, C.Rica) and no country has a below-average team (as i reckon) , which contradicts the old chliché that football players are rather short.
Czech Rep 184,5
Costa Rica 180,1
Ivory Coast 179,6
Saudi Arabia 177,3
