    The most underachieving nation in the world

    Who are the best unachieved nation in the world?

    I'm going with the mighty Holland...just think of all the greats that have came from Holland...Rijkaard,Guillet,Neeskins,van Basten,Cruyff, Ronald Koeman and all we've won is 1 Eurpoean cup in '88!!But we've got van der Vaart and Sneijder and Babel and Kuyt and stekelenburg all growing up now.

    If you ask me, it's Argentina..

    Redondo, Di Stefano, Maradona, Batistuta, Aimar...and only 2 World Cups.

    Holland..ok...but to be honest, I believe for a country like that, they even overachieved. Argentina however had the best player ever, the best player of the 50ies and Redondo, who was in the 90ies under the top3..and they only have 2 World Cups. Talentwise and playerwise, they are very little less than Brazil.

    yes..but for the simple fact that a country of Holland's size has produced so many great players IMHO is quite an overachievement. Compare them with Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, Belgium and other countries of their size and status. It's IMO incredible that they are that good at all.

    Spain could be at the contenders for this one.

    But you have to clarify by what you mean an underachiever. One that won nothing....?

    Yeah I think that's what he means I also have to say Holland some of the players they have brought to the football world are amazing. But Holland were once European Champions so do they cound as under achievers?

    Wells for me, they have so much players in England league and they never quallifie, Ireland is the same, I would count my Bosnia in that same level too.

    Spain do it for me as they anger me with the consistently good looking sides they field which consistently fail.

    Spain for sure... They have always had great individal players. However, they have never won nothing.. They are soooo unlucky!

    Canada. Overflowing with talent and we've only been apart of one World Cup.

    Seriously though, England and Spain take the cake. Look at all the great players those countries have had and look at their success, or lack thereof; One World Cup and one Euro Cup between both of them. Wow....

    A one liner with pure quality and class. Exactly my thoughts when I was reading this.

    I would also go with the Dutchs, they had so many great players in the past, just have never been able to win the WC.

    It’s true England really do suck. But the individual players in the team are probably the best in the world. They have been underachieving big time...

    The only reason you think England have the best individuals in the world is because in England/N.Ireland/Scotland/Wales and Rep of Ireland they are the most talked about and we get to see lots of matches and we hear it on the radio, but if we lived in Italy we'd think it would be Italy that have the best individual's...
