Real Madrid roster for U.S. tour

Real Madrid’s roster for friendlies against the Los Angeles Galaxy on July 16 at the L.A. Coliseum, Chivas Guadalajara on July 20 at San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium and the Philadelphia Union on July 23 at Lincoln Financial Field:

Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas, Antonio Adan, Tomas Mejias, Jesus Fernandez Collado.

Defenders: Ricardo Carvalho, Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Alvaro Arbeloa, Raul Albiol, Nacho, Jorge Casado, Raphael Varane, Fabio Coentrao.

Midfielders: Kaka, Esteban Granero, Xabi Alonso, Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira, Nuri Sahin.

Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Jose Callejon, Jese Rodriguez, Jose Luis Mato Sanmartin.

The list is subject to change. While in California, the team will train at UCLA. The travel delegation also includes club officials Zinedine Zidane and Emilio Butragueno.

I’m hoping to soon receive the rosters for FC Barcelona and Manchester United, who are headed to America later this month and, among other games, will play one another July 30 at FedEx Field in a rematch of the UEFA Champions League final.
