It's less than two weeks for the FIFA Club World Cup to start in Morocco. Real Madrid will certainly travel South to win this trophy and become the club world champions, and FIFA have released the squad lists for the tournament. Here's Real Madrid's list.

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Navas, Pacheco

Defenders: Arbeloa, Carvajal, Varane, Pepe, Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo, Coentrao

Midfielders: Illarramendi, Khedira, Kroos, Isco, James, Medrán

Strikers: Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Chicharito, Benzema, Jesé

Luka Modric hasn't made the cut, while Jesé Rodríguez will be able to contribute even though he obviously needs some more playing time before having a chance to start for Ancelotti. As Carlo Ancelotti announced, academy player Álvaro Medrán takes Modric's spot on the list.

It will be interesting to see if Ancelotti makes some rotations during the tournament, as Real Madrid will be facing manageable opposition. Only Argentinian side San Lorenzo de Almagro will likely be some kind of a challenge for the trophy.

You can see the rest of the club's lists in this link.
