Who is on for a #UCL/World Cup double in 2018?

Having played as Real Madrid won the 2014 UEFA Champions League, Sami Khedira had a bittersweet knowledge with Germany a few weeks later, pulling adult harmed during a warm-up before his country’s FIFA World Cup final win opposite Argentina.

“I harm my calf during a warm-up; we could have attempted to play, yet we had to put my group first,” he pronounced afterwards. “The impulse we realised we wouldn’t play was a many harmful of my career.”

That cut of bad fitness ensured that usually 8 players can still explain to have been on winning sides in European Cup and World Cup finals in a same summer – yet Khedira, now during Juventus, is one of a horde of UEFA Champions League stars determined to do something similar.

Juan Mata, meanwhile, can dream of completing a singular double-double; like Fernando Torres, Mata won a #UCL and EURO finals in 2012, yet usually a Manchester United actor can demeanour to do a #UCL-World Cup double in 2018.

A handful some-more endured bittersweet Khedira-like experiences. Wim Kieft lifted a 1988 European Cup with PSV Eindhoven yet did not make it off a dais with a Netherlands in a 1988 UEFA European Championship final. Real Madrid’s Nicolas Anelka met a same predestine with France in 2000, while team-mate Christian Karembeu fared somewhat worse – he was an new patrol member in a finals of both a 2000 UEFA Champions League and UEFA EURO 2000 (though he had been on a representation to win both a UEFA Champions League and a 1998 World Cup dual summers before).
