Real Madrid have published their squad list for the upcoming FIFA Club World Cup, which will begin next Wednesday in the Semifinals game against Al Jazira (6pm CET).
REAL MADRID SQUAD:
Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla and Moha.
Defenders: Carvajal, Vallejo, Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Theo and Achraf.
Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, M. Llorente, Asensio, Isco, Kovacic and Ceballos.
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez and Mayoral.
Zidane has included every player on the first team in this squad list, even though the club didn’t register Jesus Vallejo on the tournament when FIFA published the team’s list.
It’s clear that Madrid are the heavy favorites to win the cup as the European champions, but they will still have to take care of business against Al Jazira first and most likely Gremio in the Final if the Brazilian side beat Pachuca.
Madrid’s next game after this Club World Cup will be against Barcelona in La Liga.
