Some football positions, such as defense and goalkeeping, necessitate the use of tall players. Having tall goalkeepers and center backs will ensure that the club concedes fewer goals from set-piece situations.
The list below describes the tallest players in every position, both active and retired. Please read down.
Thibaut Courtois is considered to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world. In 2018, he transfered from Chelsea to Real Madrid. The Belgian footballer is one of the world most tallest players, standing at an height of 6 feet and 3 inches.
Virgil Van Dijk and Gerard Pique will be the center backs for the team. Both players are among the league's tallest defenders, and they excel at defending set-pieces by outshining their opponents in aerial balls. They can also utilize their height to their advantage.
Fellaini, a former Manchester United player, will line up with Nemanja Matic and Socrates in the midfield for the team. These three men are among the tallest players in the Premier League.
Footballers like Peter Crouch, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Koller are among the most tallest strikers to have played football.
