In its latest weekly letter published on Monday, the Football Observatory has established a ranking of the clubs having trained the most players present at the 2022 World Cup. Paris Saint-Germain, dominating in Ligue 1, is one of the best ranked teams in the planetary scale.
Whatever happens between now and the end of the competition, the Paris Saint Germain will have marked this 2022 World Cup. Of course, Parisians like Neymar, Marquinhos, Pablo Sarabia and Nuno Mendes have experienced difficult times. But others are much more to their advantage, like the Frenchman Kylian Mbappé (5 goals) or the Argentinian Lionel Messi (4 goals), both struggling in the scorer rankings. And this is not the only area where the capital club stands out.
PSG like Barça, Man City…
In its latest weekly letter, the Football Observatory (CIES) looked at the clubs that have trained the most players present in this 2022 World Cup. Training clubs are those where the players stayed at least three years between the seasons of their 15th and 21st birthdays “, specifies the CIES, which therefore did not take into account the talents briefly spent with certain teams during their training. Result, with seven Globalists divided into four different selections, Paris Saint-Germain comes fifth tied with other clubs like Manchester City, Liverpool, FC Barcelona or Benfica.

The French champion, known for the quality of his pool, is obviously the first resident of Ligue 1 in the Top 50 established by the Football Observatory. Only one other French team appears in this hierarchy, namely AS Monaco, where a certain Kylian Mbappé has developed, and which has five Globalists in four selections in Qatar. Honorable statistics for the Parisian and Monegasque training centers.
