Real Madrid will have 12 of their players representing their respective nations in the 2022 FIFA World Cup which will be held in Qatar soon. This famous FIFA tournament is happening in the Middle East for the first time in its history.
Let’s discuss how three of those 12 Real Madrid players will fare in this edition of the FIFA World Cup.
Luka Modric (Croatia)
Modric has experienced a decent campaign in the Spanish capital as he has put in a few influential displays at the centre of Real Madrid’s midfield. He has scored five goals and picked up a couple of assists in 18 appearances for Los Blancos this season on all fronts.
The 37-year-old managed to help his nation, Croatia, reach the final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup where they eventually lost to France in the final. Modric will have to use his experience and creativity well if his country are to go on a similar run this time around in Qatar when the competition takes place later this month.
Aurelien Tchouameni (France)
Tchouameni has enjoyed a wonderful campaign at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium after he produced a run of dominant displays for Los Blancos at the centre of the park. The 22-year-old has secured two assists in 18 matches for the Madrid giants this season across various competitions. Tchouameni has been a consistent performer for Real Madrid based on his average of 2.3 tackles, 1.8 interceptions, 1.8 clearances, 1.2 shots, 0.8 key passes and 0.8 dribbles per 90 minutes in La Liga. He has even been tidy with his ball distribution after making 93.2% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).
The talented midfielder will now serve as an important member of France’s squad in this World Cup. He is expected to be one of Les Bleus’ main options for the central midfield spots during the competition.
Tchouameni will fancy taking his good form from club football to the international stage and being a good midfield anchorman for his country away in Qatar.
Eduardo Camavinga (France)
The 20-year-old has impressed a lot of people with his performances as a substitute for Los Blancos during this campaign. He has managed to form a solid midfield partnership with Tchouameni in both club and international football. Hence, France will also rely on the pair to do well when the World Cup kicks off on November 20.
The Cabinda-born talent deserves credit for featuring in 20 matches for Real Madrid this season in multiple competitions.
