B/R's World Football Tall-Guy XI

Ryan Bailey@ryanjaybaileyFeatured ColumnistNovember 13, 2013

Aerial threat may not be in vogue in today's climate of fashionable tiki-taka passing, but it's hard to deny the virtues of having abnormally tall players in a lineup.

What if every player in a team was over 6'4" and therefore able to win every single aerial battle? Would they have lofty ambitions for success or draw the short straw when they get beaten on the floor?

B/R has assembled an XI of the lankiest players in the game, all of whom can easily reach that jar at the back of your highest kitchen cupboard. Seeing as there aren't too many exceptionally tall wide players in the beautiful game, we've had to take a couple of positional liberties, but let us know what you think of the selection in the comments.
