Madrid players can't live without World Cup final! This is their SIXTH in a row!
- For the sixth time in a row, Real Madrid players take part in the World Cup final
- Varane (France), Modric and Kovacic (both - Croatia) are the Royals' representers this time
- At least one World Cup winner, wearing Los Blancos shirt throughout the season, is guaranteed at the present tournament
And it's absolutely true. Raphael Varane, Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic will be featuring as Real Madrid representers, and this happens to the club for the sixth straight World Cup.
Since the 1998 finals, each World Cup showpiece has featured at least one Real Madrid player, including the initial tournament as well.
According to Real Madrid's official website, the first Real Madrid involvement in a final came back in 1974, when Günther Netzer featured for West Germany. The other Madridistas to have reached the tournament's showdown are Stielike (1982), Valdano (1986), Ruggeri (1990), Karembeu (1998), Roberto Carlos (1998 and 2002), Zidane (2006), Casillas, Arbeloa, Albiol, Ramos, Xabi Alonso and Van der Vaart (2010) and Khedira and Di María (2014).
On Sunday France will play Croatia in the World Cup final, which means that there'll certainly be at least one World Cup winner representing Galacticos.
Fabulous, isn't it?
