8 Real Madrid players outperforming all others in the World Cup

Saturday 30th June 2018

Real Madrid has been the top team on the planet for a while now. Four Champions Leagues in five years backs that claim. Los Blancos won those titles under two different managers. While Carlo Ancelotti and Zinedine Zidane both deserve credit, it was mainly down to the players.  

Madrid boast the world's best squad, one which is balanced perfectly. From Sergio Ramos' aggression to Raphael Varane's poise, Luka Modric's experience to Mateo Kovacic's youth, Isco's guile to Gareth Bale's explosiveness, Les Merengues have it all. 

In the World Cup, the biggest stars are expected to perform. In 2014, Lionel Messi, Arjen Robben and Manuel Neuer all shone brightly.   

The European champions lay claim to 15 players in Russia, the second most of any club. Ronaldo and Co are determined to own the spotlight this time around. Real's roster is replicating club performance on football's grandest stage.  

Here are seven Galacticos excelling in the World Cup.
