Real Madrid Announces Roster To Face Celtic In Philadelphia

In a highly anticipated matchup between two of the most renowned soccer clubs in the world, Real Madrid and Celtic are scheduled to play in Philadelphia on August 11 in Lincoln Financial Field.

On Saturday, Real Madrid let their star-studded roster be known.

Goalkeepers: Iker Casillas, Antonio Adan, Jesus Fernandez Collado

Defenders: Raul Albiol, Alvaro Arbeola, Fabio Coantrao, Jose Nacho Fernandez, Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane

Midfielders: Xabi Alonso, Jose Maria Callejon, Angel Di Maria, Lass Diarra, Alex Fernandez, Esteban Granera, Kaka, Sami Khedira, Mesut Uzil, Jese Rodriguez, Nuri Sahin

Forwards: Karim Benzima, Gonzalo Higuain, Alvaro Morata, Cristiano Ronaldo

Few clubs if any can present the type of firepower that Real Madrid possesses with the likes of Kaka, Pepe, Ramos, and of course Ronaldo among others. With marquee names at every level of the pitch, Celtic will have their collective hands full.

Of course, they're no slouch either and will certainly be ready to meet the formidable challenge.

The match should be a dandy and is luckily only a few short weeks away.
