Scoring in the world cup final is one of the most euphoric moments for players.

Scoring in the final of football's most recognized tournament is one of the most euphoric experiences for players who have won or equalized in World Cup finals for their country. We have seen players settle the game on their own by scoring hat-tricks or braces in World Cup finals, such as Zidane, Pele, and Ronaldo in their individual World Cup finals.

And setting records at the club level as well, with the most goals scored by them from a major club, and with this, we highlighted below the top five clubs whose players have landed the most goals in the World Cup finals.

West Ham – 4

England has won the World Cup only once which happened in 1966 against West Germany. Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters carried England to the title and are still the only England players to score in the final, but West Ham is the only English club whose players scored in the final. While Geoff Hurst is the only player in history to score a hat-trick in the final.

In 1974, Bayern Munich hero Paul Breitner became the first Bayern Munich player to score in a final, and the following goal was scored by another Bayern classic, Gerd Muller, which appeared decisive as West Germany won the second title 2-1 over the Netherlands.

The last Bayern Munich player to score in the finale was Mario Gotze, whose goal against Argentina in the 2014 FIFA World Cup final proved valuable to their fourth trophy.
