[post_page_title]Lothar Mattäus, Germany – 25[/post_page_title]
Lothar Mattäus is one of a very select list to have appeared in five World Cup tournaments as a player. His first came in 1982, and he appeared in each tournament until 1998. Unsurprisingly, appearing at so many tournaments means he has the record number of appearances at the competition. Mattäus was a dynamic midfielder, with great stamina, allowing him to run the length of the field all game long. Mattäus managed to lift the World Cup in 1990, winning Player of the Year in Germany the same year.
