Isco was trying his hand at FIFA when he scored a free-kick on the game and made this interesting remark.
The Real Madrid attacker was playing the game with his teammates when he scored a direct free-kick. After scoring, he said: “This year I’ll finally be able to take free kicks.”
We’re not sure that being good at FIFA and being a good footballer is a transferable skill, but Isco seems to believe so.
Real Madrid had a huge disruption over the summer as star player Cristiano Ronaldo was sold to Juventus for £100 million and Zinedine Zidane, who oversaw the club winning Champions League trophies, left his post unexpectedly. This is topped with players such as Luka Modric being heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan, following a superb World Cup in Russia, where he helped Croatia reach the final.
Lots of people have been making their predictions for this upcoming campaign. Where at one time Real Madrid were favourites to win the Champions League, that title has now gone to Juventus, Barcelona and Manchester City.
But Gareth Bale has been in stunning form, and Los Blancos still have the likes of Isco in their ranks, so they shouldn’t be counted out as serious contenders just yet.
Can Real Madrid make a serious challenge for the Champions League? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
