How have Man City just broken a World Cup record?

Pep Guardiola's champions are so good they're now breaking records in international football...

Man City really are taking the p**s now.

Not content with breaking pretty much every Premier League record available to them, they’re now writing their name into the history books of international football.

Leave some records for someone else, lads…

Not accounting for any possible last-minute injuries, City will have 17 players at this summer’s World Cup.

The English Champions will set a new record for a single club at the tournament in the process, breaking Arsenal’s tally of 15 in 2006.

Real Madrid are set to have 16 representatives at this summer’s tournament, putting them second in the record books.

And it’s a former Los Blancos player who has given City the edge over the Champions League finalists.

An injury to Dani Alves meant Brazil called up Danilo, who wasn’t guaranteed a place prior to the PSG right-back’s setback.

Ederson, Fernandinho and Gabriel Jesus make it four City representatives in Tite’s star-studded squad.

Gareth Southgate wisely opted to select the City quartet of Kyle Walker, John Stones, Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph.

The latter being something of a surprise call-up, given how few minutes he’s played as a midfielder in recent times.

Kevin De Bruyne and Vincent Kompany will be hoping to make life miserable for their English club team-mates when Belgium meet the Three Lions in the group stage.

While Ilkay Gundogan and Leroy Sane will attempt to retain Germany’s crown.

Nicolas Otamendi and Sergio Aguero have the pleasure of calling Lionel Messi a team-mate on the grandest stage of them all.

Finally, Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Benjamin Mendy will represent Portugal, Spain and France respectively.

It makes sense that a team who reached 100 points for the first time in English top-flight football would be well represented at a subsequent international tournament.

Still, impressive nonetheless.


Dream Team World Cup has landed!
