World Cup winners at Arsenal

Post by Nos89 »

Saw a picture on FB the other day of Petit and Vieira holding the trophies they won in 1998.

Led me to think if Arsenal are the leading club to have had world cup winners playing for them of the top of my head I can think of 10 players who won the world cup, and played for us.

Anyone know different?

Yes, a bored lockdown thought.

Here's all I can think off but of course some of them were not arsenal players at the time.

There had to be an arsenal player in the 66 squad?

Vieira
Petit
Henry
Pires
Ozil
BFG
Podolski
Giroud
Fabregas
Gilberto
