Gordon Banks

Scored one of the penalties against Engerland in the semi......unused sub in final

Stefan Reuter came on as a sub in final

Andy Moller was in the squad but did not feature in final

all played in the second leg at FP

Stand corrected on Riedle. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I had him as East German like Sammer...

In my time the world cup winners that have played at Fir Park are...

 

Stefan Reuter (actually played in the final)

Karl Heinz Riedle (squad player)

Andreas Moller (squad player)

Stephane Guivarch (actually played in final, I know!)

Lionel Charbonnier (squad player)

Gennaro Gattuso (actually played in final)

 

Giovanni von Bronckhorst played in a world cup final but obviously lost.  So did Edson Braafheid who had a short spell at Celtic but although he played against Motherwell at Celtic Park, he never played at Fir Park.

Was thinking Cannigia but reading he never played in winning team

Cannigia wasn't in the 1986 squad.  He was in the 1990 squad but didn't play in the final.

The 'Big Three' East Germans that switched over to the Germany team were  Mattias Sammer, Andreas Thom (played at Celtic of course) and Ulf Kirsten.

I know its a question of interpretation

but likes of Gattuso was not a world cup winner that graced Fir park, he last played in Scotland 97-98 , but wasn't a world cup winner until 2006

we'd be as well listing Turnbull, Hastie, Campbell , Cadden & Scott ( Tierney, Robertson etc)  if its , players that played at Fir park and then later in career became world cup winners  :polling:

Nah that was years before.

I thought the question was who has won a World Cup and played at Fir Park, not who had played at Fir Park as a World Cup Winner.

I'd say they have to come to FP as a winner.

Not a teen that won something 10 years later!
