Chelsea Legends squad confirmed for Real Madrid match

Chelsea Legends are back in action this summer when they face Real Madrid, with a squad packed full of Blues royalty.

Our 24-man squad for the match at the Bernabeu on Sunday 23 June features some of the best Chelsea players from recent memory, including current coaches Gianfranco Zola and Carlo Cudicini.

Former captains Dennis Wise and Marcel Desailly are also on the list, alongside an array of talent from the 1990s, 2000s and 2010s.
 

Ricardo Carvalho and Michael Essien, who both also take part in Soccer Aid at Stamford Bridge next month, featured for both teams during their illustrious careers, and will be returning to the Bernabeu for what promises to be an exciting afternoon.

A strikeforce comprising Zola, Hernan Crespo, Tore Andre Flo, Eidur Gudjohnsen and Andriy Shevchenko will surely promise goals, though we will face a tough challenge from our illustrious hosts.

Real Madrid’s team will include Raul, Roberto Carlos, Alvaro Arbeloa, Julio Baptista, with further names to be announced in due course.
