Real Madrid published the squad list for the upcoming FIFA Club World Cup, which will be played in the United Arab Emirates. Los Blancos will face Kashima Antlers this next Wednesday in the semifinals.
REAL MADRID SQUAD:
Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas, Casilla and Courtois.
Defenders: Carvajal, Vallejo, Sergio Ramos, Varane, Nacho, Marcelo, Odriozola, Reguilón and Javi Sánchez.
Midfielders: Kroos, Modric, Casemiro, Valverde, M. Llorente, Asensio, Isco and Ceballos.
Forwards: Mariano, Benzema, Bale, Lucas Vázquez and Vinicius Jr.
As expected, coach Santiago Solari included every singe player on Real’s first team in this squad list. Javi Sanchez and Vinicius will also be available in case Solari needs them. Casemiro is still recovering from his injury and so is Nacho. While the Brazilian midfielder might be able to feature as he’s approaching his return, it’s clear that Marcos Llorente will be in better shape.
Bale should also have more than enough time to recover from the small ankle injury he picked up against CSKA, something which forced him to miss the clash against Rayo.
