Real Madrid Team News: Cristiano Ronaldo Named In Super Cup Squad

No Neymar in UEFA's Champions League positional awards shortlist

Cristiano Ronaldo is in Real Madrid's squad to face Manchester United on Tuesday, days after admitting he wants to return to England.

The question is relevant.

While Lindelof needs to buckle up and improve the timings of his challenges, Smalling needs to play a steady game to improve his confidence and try to re-establish faith among manage and fans.

United and Madrid have already played once this summer in Santa Clara, with United winning on penalties after a 1-1 draw at Levi's Stadium. Barcelona and Manchester City looked fresher, more focused, with more hunger.

Ronaldo was not expected to feature in the match having just returned to training last week.

Had things been different, Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos could have been lining up for United against the Champions League winners in Skopje. It will be a fantastic final and hopefully it goes our way.

"We've been working and resting very well".

Spanish champions Real, who won Europe's elite club competition for the second year in a row, were awarded half the total slots on the shortlist. Mourinho is particularly determined to make it memorable in Macedonia to launch the new campaign on a positive note and continue from where they left off in Stockholm: thrusting silverware into the night air.

"In the end that is what interests me, him and everyone else". He was given an extended break.

Spain has dominated the Super Cup in recent years, with LaLiga clubs taking home the trophy in seven of the last eight years, while Liverpool are the only English winners since 1998. For instance, Keylor Navas has recovered his confidence, defending the fort with a handful of stunning saves whenever he's participated.

He said: "There was an opportunity in the past". And even if he fails to start for Real, they have some solid players such as Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Luka Modric to take over and deliver. So we made the decision not to travel with him.
