A few weeks ago I did a video about seven national football teams that are overloaded in a particular position. It was an idea suggested to me by Lennart on Twitter, and given that the video has gone on to amass close to a million views, becoming the third most viewed video I’ve ever made, Lennart - I probably owe you a pint if I ever bump into you.
When a club side inadvertently becomes overloaded in a specific position, say at centre-back, but has very little in the way of firepower up front, it is only natural that they may look to offload their third or fourth choice central defender and strengthen in attacking areas in the transfer market. National teams have no such luxury, however. Within the weird and wonderful world of international football, you have a pool of players that only alters as youngsters break through into the game and others retire.
