ofcourse its jsut gessing and nothign else but supposse there was a competition with a home and away game between lets say 12 nations all tiem teams. so at the end who would coem out on top ? argentina, brazil, uruguay, holland, germany, france, italy, hungary, spain, portugal, england, scotland.. those 12 nations imo can bring on the strongest squads. maybe (former) yugoslavia and russia (former soviet union) should also be included ?? so either 12 or 14 nations.. feel free to add russia/soviet union or yugoslavia if you feel like.. lets say all teams have a 18 man selection because in a competition ofcourse soem get injured, receive red and yellow cards etc etc. i would favor my own nation (holland) in a 1 one 1 vs most of these nations but in certain positions the depth of quality isn't big enough especially our rightback position.. our starting 11 are capable of winning agaisnt each and everyone of the other nations but for exampel loosing defenders like suurbier or krol due to suspencions or injury leaves us with not the same quality.. so holland will probably end up amongst the best 4 but not as nr. 1 for the same reason i don't see brazil winnign it.. just to few atg defensive players....especially central defense and DM.. there attackign players ofcourse are plenty to chooce from zico, pele, garincha, ronaldo, rivelino, romario hungary ?? an atg attack line (kubala, puskas, kocsic, czibor, hidegkuti) they can come up with yet their troubles are also in defense.. england and scotland ? quite comparable imo.. (charlton, moore, banks, finney, matthews for england...dalglish, mcgrain, hansen, souness, johnstone for scotland) yet i feel still a level below some of the other nations. they will not end up in the top 5 uruguay is probably the opposite of hungary.... enough quality in defense.. andrade and andrade, varela, nazassi, santamaria.. but only schiaffino and maybe francescoli are atg offensive players for them.. spain ??? gento, luis suarez miramontes and besides them ? great attackers they had but none atg level.. their defense though is quite good.. quincoces, hierro, camacho, either zamorra or casillas in goal.. portugal the opposite of spain.. offensive.. figo, christiano ronaldo, eusebio, coluna, rui costa... but portugese defenders just very good not atg (maybe germano the exception) that leaves us with argentina, france, germany and italy.... italy has for each defensive position 2 or 3 players from atg level and quality.. zoff, buffon, baresi, nesta, cannavaro, scirea, bergomi, gentile, maldini, fachetti thats some richness to chooce from.. midfield also enough good players to chooce from.. but imo italy lacks a few atg finishers.. still italy is a contender to win... germany... probably same as italy.. enough defenders and midfielders to chooce from.. maier, beckenbauer, kaltz, vogts, kohler, schnellinger, breitner, netzer, overath, matthaus, sammer.. but no real atg wingers and as for strikers besides muller and rummenigge maybe uwe seeler.. but germany is germany ..great fighting mentality to the end next is france...france has one great striker henry (dominique rochetau was borderline great to much injured etc etc).. still platini, zidane, kopa thats enough attackign qualities.. defensively also enough to chooce from tigana, vieira, desailly, tresor, lizerazu, thuram, amoros. yet france lacks and atg goalkeeper their goalkeepers have always been average... finally argentina...fillol, carizzo, passarella, rugerri, marzolini, zanetti, rossi, monti, redondo thats solid enough maybe the depth in other backs is slightly not as good s some other nations. attackingly its phenomenal.. moreno, messi, maradona, di stefano, orsi, sivori.. conclusion... in a competition of the all tiem teams of the best nations in the world probably argentina would come out as the winner............ give me you're thoughts though..
