Below are the squads for the 1938 FIFA World Cup final tournament in France.

Hungary and Switzerland were the only teams who had players from foreign clubs. All the three such players represented French clubs.

Nine selected players by Germany came from the qualified but not participating Austria due to Anschluss.

Rosters include reserves, alternates, and preselected players that may have participated in qualifiers and/or pre-tournament friendlies but not in the finals themselves.
