My piece for MARCA

Ahead of their journey to Canada on Sunday, Real Madrid have announced the list of players making the trip for the International Champions Cup in North America.

The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale have been excused after the European Championship, but Marco Asenio and Castilla's Mariano and Martin Odegaard all made the cut.

Madrid will face Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich in the summer tournament before returning to Europe to face Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup on August 9.

Keylor Navas, who is still recovering for surgery, is also part of the group.


Goalkeepers: Navas, Casilla, Yáñez, Craninx, Luca

Defenders: Varane, Danilo, Carvajal, Marcelo, Nacho, Lienhart, Tejero, Achraf

Midfielders: Casemiro, Isco, Kovacic, Llorente, Asensio, Odegaard, Enzo, Febas

Forwards: Benzema, Jese, Mariano, Mayoral
