Julián Álvarez and Lautaro Martínez recently won the World Cup in Qatar 2022 with Argentina.

Two Argentine forwards will be part of the Manchester City and Inter squads taking part in this year’s Champions League final.

Julián Álvarez and Lautaro Martínez recently won the World Cup in Qatar 2022 with Argentina and are now hoping to win the Champions League with their respective clubs.

Álvarez scored in City’s 4-0 home win over Real Madrid on Wednesday, while Martínez captained Inter as they beat AC Milan in Tuesday’s semi-final second leg.

Bayern Munich and Germany players
In 1974, Sepp Maier, Paul Breitner, Hans-Georg Schwarzenbeck, Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Müller, Uli Hoeness and Jupp Kapellmann won the European Cup with Bayern Munich and the World Cup with West Germany.

Real Madrid and World Cup success
Twenty-four years later, in 1998, Christian Karembeu lifted the World Cup with France at France 98′. Karembeu was also part of the Real Madrid side that lifted the Champions League in the same year.

Another Real Madrid man did it in 2002. Legendary left-back Roberto Carlos won the World Cup with Brazil in Korea and Japan. Madrid were champions in Europe once again, beating Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 in the final held at Hampton Park.

Over a decade later, in 2014, another Real Madrid player lifted two of the most-coveted trophies in the game. Defensive midfielder Sami Khedira was part of successful sides on the domestic and international fronts.

Injury prevented Khedira from featuring in the 2014 World Cup final against Argentina, with Mario Gotze’s extra-time winner seeing Germany over the line.

Varane lifts both trophies
Current Manchester United centre-back Raphaël Varane won the World Cup and the Champions League in a remarkable 2018 for the Frenchman. He lifted the Champions League in May 2018 with Los Blancos, before going on to triumph with France in Russia.
