The Dutch are on record as the world’s tallest people. It is unclear as to whether they would top the poll as the most disagreeable.
The nation that produced Rinus Michels, Johan Cruyff and Dennis Bergkamp are responsible for some of the most beautiful football the world has ever witnessed.
However, at the last World Cup they were more renowned for the regular assaults carried out by Messrs De Jong and Van Bommel.
We were all terribly worried here at Power Tower thinking maybe De Jong would struggle now that his mate Van Bommel has retired. Fear not, as it appears that he may have a new partner in grievous bodily harm related crime, in the form of Feyenoord defender Bruno Martins Indi.
Based on the tackles he put in on Wesley Sneijder and Arjen Robben, Martins Indi should fit right in.
