Zinedine Zidane will be happy that he’s able to call up Luka Jovic after the player returned from injury along with Thibaut Courtois while he’ll also be intrigued to see how Eder Militao will do in his first match for the club. Given that it’s a friendly, it’s a little surprising to see the amount of players that have not been included in the squad list.
Marco Asensio, Brahim Diaz and Ferland Mendy are not called up due to injury while Luka Modric, James Rodriguez, Gareth Bale and Mariano Diaz have not been called up as all are not players needed by Zidane except for Modric.
Takefusa Kubo and Rodrygo Goes have also not been included in the squad list with the media reporting that both players will be available for Real Madrid Castilla in their upcoming match.
