Before the start of Qatar 2022, Juventus were already the club with the biggest number of World Cup winners in the history of the tournament.
The Bianconeri had 25 winners amongst their ranks, with the latest being Blaise Matuidi who lifted the trophy with France in Russia 2018.
On Sunday, the Old Lady extended its record to 27 thanks to Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes who were a part of the Argentine squad which uncrowned Les Bleus following a dramatic clash.
The winger was one of the best performers on the pitch and even scored the Albiceleste’s second goal. On the other hand, the midfielder entered in extra-time and helped his side in maintaining possession.
Although the former PSG duo are yet to earn the affection of the black and white supporters following an underwhelming first half of the campaign, they helped the club in extending their record to 27 World Cup winners, opening a gap with Bayern Munich (24).
Lionel Scaloni’s squad also featured former Juventus players Paulo Dybala and Cristian Romero, but only current players are taken into consideration.
