What is the youngest pick in eighth?


with the program round of 16 Definitely designed and a few hours after this second stage of the race towards the title will begin, the 16 teams that passed the first screening refined their weapons for the attack on the quarterfinals.

An analysis of the numbers of both allows us to highlight some curiosities of this round of 16.


USA, the youngest team

With an average age of 25.6 years, the North Americans are the youngest team in this round of 16. An argument that Gregg Berhalter’s men will try to exploit against Louis van Gaal’s Netherlands this Saturday, in the first match of this round. ‘Oranje’ has an average age of 27.2 years.



Brazil and Argentina, the “oldest”

At the other end of this age classification we find two of the great favorites for the final victory. Argentina has, for some dates, surpassed Brazil in the ranking of the ‘oldest’ teams in the tournament, with the DNI putting the average age of its players at 28.5 years. Same as ‘canarinha’, although Tite’s is, although only a day and a half on average, a little younger.

Spain and Morocco, a rivalry of ‘children’

And abundantly in this ranking, we find that the podium of the youngest teams in this round of 16 are two on which to measure each other. In particular, Spain and Morocco. Luis Enrique’s La Roja, with its commitment to youth, is the second youngest surviving team in the tournament, with an average age of 26.2 years, ahead of the African team, which has an average age of 26.8.



France-Poland, pulse of height

Mbappé, Dembélé and company are, with an average height of 185.5 centimeters, the tallest team in this round of 16. And they will face Poland, which at 184 centimeters is the fourth highest team, after Croatia (184.5) and Senegal (184.4).



La Roja bet on ‘shorts’

For its part, Spain is the fourth team with the least physical stature in this round. Luis Enrique’s has an average height of 1.81 meters, surpassed only by Argentina (179.8), Japan (179.9) and Brazil (180.8).



Europe dominated the round of 16

Half of the teams that will play in the round of 16 are teams attached to UEFA, so European football is, for now, the dominator of the tournament. In fact, in four of the eight groups of the previous phase the champion belonged to UEFA. Asia, where Japan, South Korea and Australia are also participating, continues the ranking with three representatives for the first time in its history. South America and Africa, with two representatives each, follow Europe, with Concacaf, with one representative per head, closing out the lineup.
