A thread to speculate who will be the best international team in the world in 10 years time. Given the time period it's a chance for players on the fringes of first-team football to bed in and hit their prime hopefully catapulting their country to sporting greatness. 

Will England finally have a team to be proud of or will the usual suspects in Germany and Spain still rule the world? 

 

*Poll has been set up to reflect the ten teams that are currently in the Top 10 FIFA World Rankings.

Well, it won't be us (USA). Our best athletes still continue to play other sports like Basketball, football, baseball.

I would imagine the top 10, 10 years ago look very similar to what it does today outside of a few. So I'll say either Brazil, Germany, Spain, or Argentina

If you told me 10 years ago Portugal would win the Euro's I would have thought yeah probably eventually. 

If you told me 12 years ago Germany would win the world cup I would have thought yeah probably eventually.

So on that basis I think it will be Argentina or Brazil, but I voted other, China.

I reckon Brazil.

Teams like Brazil, Germany, Argentina, Spain and perhaps a couple of others all have better youth setups and better grass-roots than the likes of England. They're pretty much sorted for the foreseeable future because of the investment they've made for the young and very young players. 

Grassroots football in England still seems so dated.

You spelt 'Uruguay' wrong.

Impossible to predict. There are the usual countries that continue to produce top talents and always competing, and there are other countries that have a golden generation and tend to do well. 

Think France will be #1 by that time in my opinion.

They are though, but I know there are some that don't seem like it. To lump them all into one group is unfair though. Look at Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, Kris Bryant, Rizzo, Sale, and you can't they that they aren't athletes.

The problem with that comparison is theres still Prince Fielder type players in that sport, can you name another sport that has pro's in shape like that? hard to find anymore. Golf used to be but Tiger seemed to lead that revolution.

The Netherlands - Reason why the top teams have very strong youth teams again, the structure of clubs have changed in quite quick fashion, the street footballers are back which made our talent famous in the past,  John Cruyff did a lot of work behind the scenes before he did pass away to set up something special and organised for the future. Also with his charity he has built football courts across the country to get people out again playing football.

Belgium will be the biggest flops in the future, no talent coming through apart from the current players, no real Belgium coaches as well look like breaking through.

Roberto Martinez is a shocking appointment as manager too. They'll probably qualify easy enough as the teams around them are much weaker but will fall short in the big games against good teams. I just can't see how Roberto is going to out-think the likes of Germany, Spain and Brazil when he failed to get a decent Everton team past the likes of West Ham and Hull City. 

 

That is Belgiums biggest weakness and it has been for some time, the coaching.  They have some good players but they do need tactics which has let them down massively in the past.   The current team remind me of the Dutch team of around 2002-2004 with good players but this very bad attitude and too many individuals.

slightly unrelated to the topic but don't knock it, the pitchers are as skilled as any bowler in cricket and the batsmen likewise.
