Players to have appeared in multiple World Cups

How many players can you name to have appeared in multiple World Cups?

Only a select few get to experience the joy and pride at representing their country. Pulling on your nations colours is a dream for any aspiring footballer and to play at a major tournament for them is about as big as it comes - especially in the World Cup. It's the biggest competition in world football and the pressure of playing in it is unlike anything anything else. Every football fan dreams of seeing their team win the World Cup so the weight of expectation is absolutely massive - imagine the nerves when taking a penalty in a shoot out!

Not many players make it to the World Cup but the ones that do are generally regarded as some of the best in the world. They tend to feature in the majority of their nations squads and over the years we've seen some incredible performances from them. No player has ever appeared in more than 5 World Cups and it looks like it'll take some beating, especially with the tournament only on every four years.

Only 3 players have appeared that many times at the finals, with 16 years separating their first and last outings there! We've been taking a look at some of the statistics surrounding appearances at the finals and put together a little quiz for you. We want to see how many players you can name to have appeared at the most World Cups and it really isn't easy. There's some big names and some slightly surprising ones with 23 answers in total - so give it your best shot below and tweet your attempts into us @FootyAccums!
