Abstract

Managing team selection for the World Cup is as challenging as managing human resources in business. Currently only a few countries have won the World Cup in the biggest sporting event in the world. In fact, many countries today are yearning to win the World Cup. Managing team selection of the 23-man squad is pivotal and particularly when fielding the 11 players on the field. This research examined archives of World Cup teams from 1930-2018 to investigate the selections of players from their clubs to attain information whether fielding more players from the same soccer club impacted the probability to win the World Cup. The findings showed there is a pattern especially since World Cup 2006 that fielding more players from the same club determines a team’s victorious destiny.
