Can you name Real Madrid’s XI from Jonathan Woodgate’s debut in 2005?


On September 22 2005, Jonathan Woodgate made his long-awaited Real Madrid debut – which entered folklore for all the wrong reasons.

After signing from Newcastle in 2004, Woodgate spent the entirety of the 2004-05 season on the sidelines with injury and eventually made his Madrid bow in a La Liga match against Athletic Bilbao.

But the former Leeds and Newcastle United defender managed to score an own goal and get sent off during the 3-1 victory. He went on to have some success at the Bernabeu but couldn’t quite outrun his first impression.

What we want you to do here, though, is name Madrid’s starting XI from the Englishman’s debut against Bilbao.

If this gives you the taste for another testing quiz, why not try naming every player to play for Real Madrid and Barcelona since 1990?
