Some overrated players that spring to mind:

Asmir Begovic. Good GK, but IMO, Sorensen is better.
Adel Taarbat. Yes, he was awesome in the Championship last year, but in the PL this year, he's barely noticeable.
Andy Carroll. Never going to be a top class striker, and NEVER going to live up to being a £35 million player! With Heskey's retirement from international football, Carroll will be a perfect replacement for England.

I'll be back with more when I think of them.

I thought this was based on current football, not historic?! That's why I went for Italy, same for Argentina!
