To experience sort of what you're describing the Sticker album versions for these sets are quite good as they provide stats for the players about their careers etc, and are able to include more players at that. Personally, along with many other people I suspect, cards are more fun to collect though.

Match Attax England did highlight the main players for each team and if you'd have had say 9 players for Algeria their scores would have probably dropped to the 30s for example and would be generally undesirable. With the World Stars set however there were a few more players included and they look a great addition to any match attax england binder. (I could provide ebay links if you're interested)
Great post, I understand completley. I just find it a tad frustrating and just wish they could have dibulged abit more into other teams. The world cup is arguably the most unpredictable tournament in the world so to have loads of cards available for England, France and Italy who all had awful world cup and to have like 5/6 cards on Ghana who had a great world cup, I think is a abit unfair and embarrasing on Topps behalf. As for the Ebay links, much appreciated but no thank you, i'll stick with concentrating on the premierLeague set for now :) Love your videos by the way :)
and uruguay. fourth place!

As topps are the license owers for england, they would have to prioritise the england squad. and there wouldn't be many cards from the teams mentioned above. this is usually aimed at children and you don't expect a 10 year old naming the entire 23 man squad for algeria.

Thats very true. However I'm unsure whether a 10 year old could name a 23 man squad other than Englands to be honest. If it was upto me all teams would have had like 10 cards each to collect, with a legends set, keeping it nice and simple, however obviously an idea which people will have differing opinions on. (I also reckon there were far too many LE too)
I thought the amount of le's available in UK was reasonable. it was just all of the foreign ones from other countries that annoyed me. didn't bother that much with the LE's in the end.
if you thought that the england set was bad, you should see the first collection or the german ones.
