World Cup Appearances

Fabio Cannavaro Italy World Cup 2006

Can you name the players to have made the most appearances at the World Cup Finals?

The World Cup is the most prestigious tournament on offer when it comes to football. Every player aspires to play at the highest level and there's no greater honour than representing your country on the biggest stage of all. There's only a select number of players who get to do this and the pressure on them is absolutely immense - as playing for your country brings enormous expectations. We as England fans know all about how much this can impact on the players, with us having very little to shout about since 1966 - but maybe this is our year?!

Russia 2018 is the 21st edition of the World Cup and over the years some absolute legends have starred in it to try inspire their nation to glory. Should your country go all the way at the World Cup the most a player can play is 7 times, so it's very difficult to clock up a large number of appearances. The record currently stands at a massive 25 and it looks like it'll take some beating, with the player in question featuring in 5 different tournaments for Germany.

After looking through some of the top appearance makers at the World Cup Finals, we've put together a quiz to really test your knowledge. We want to see if you can name the players to have made the most appearances at the World Cup Finals since 1982 and it really isn't easy. There's some huge names to feature in it but there's also some tough ones, so anything over 70% is a very solid effort.
