Players with more World Cups Played

Brazil's World Cup will serve as a farewell for many players, especially goalkeepers. Iker Casillas, Julio César are some of the illustrious goalkeepers who will almost certainly say goodbye to their team at the end of the World Cup. As well, two other goal myths will: Faryd Mondragón and Gianluigi Buffon.

Mondragon will play its third World Cup in Brazil with the distinction of being the longest-running goal in world participation, because the first one goes back to 1994 and the latter to 20 years later. It will also do so with almost 43 years becoming the most veteran footballer of those who have contested a World Cup and beating Roger Milla.

The case of Italian is even more special. Buffon will celebrate his fifth World Cup in Brazil and draw with Antonio Carbajal and Lothar Matthäus as footballers with the most participations in the most prestigious football competition. Total, only these three will have the privilege of having played five World Cups. With 4, but nevertheless, the cast rises to 19 football players, which will be many after the completion of Brazil 2014.
