There’s 32 players at World Cup 2014 who have earned more than 100 caps for their country (before the tournament), the equivalent of one for each team. Those 32 have got some things in common, and some differences.
As is my wont, I’ve graphed up a few of the things – you might be surprised. You might not.
Mexico’s Guardado is the 27-year old.
Goalkeepers are getting younger. Forwards are getting older.
Iker Casillas has 153 caps. Winner.
