Can you name Real Madrid’s XI from Toni Kroos’ debut v Sevilla in 2014?

Quizzes
Real Madrid's Toni Kroos playing against Sevilla at the Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff, August 2014.

In his near-decade at Real Madrid, Toni Kroos has become a club legend, winning numerous trophies and putting in hundreds of outstanding performances. But can you remember the starting line-up from his Madrid debut?

Kroos came through at Bayern Munich, making a name for himself in the team that won the Champions League under Jupp Heynckes in 2013 and becoming a central part of the Germany team that won the World Cup a year later.

The midfielder moved to Madrid at the behest of Carlo Ancelotti that same summer and made his debut in August in the UEFA Super Cup in Cardiff, where Madrid played serial Europa League winners Sevilla.

Ancelotti’s team, who had won Madrid’s tenth European Cup a few months earlier, comfortably overcame their La Liga rivals, winning 2-0 with a goal either side of half-time from a man who, at that time, seemed to score twice in every game he played.

Kroos has since gone on to make himself a Madrid great, winning three European Cups as well as two Spanish titles in the famous white strip.

But what we want you to do here is name the team that Ancelotti sent out to start that game in the Welsh capital back in 2014.
