Spain and Scotland ranked the lowest in the median squad height for Euro. What nation is the highest?

Height is a very important aspect of football especially in positions like central defenders, strikers and of course goalkeepers.

So being a tall nation has some benefits, though, short players also have advantages: they are usually better dribbles, more agile and faster.

Here's the list of the median squad heights of Euro 24 participants with Serbia being on top.

In this list median is used instead of the average squad height. The median is less affected by outliers and extremely tall or short players, which can skew the average.

This makes the median a better measure of central tendency when the data isn't symmetrically distributed. If the list has an odd number of entries, the median is the middle number.
