Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Ronaldo, Ben Arfa, Lassana Diarra… Hannibal Mejbri’s dream eleven!
Author of a decisive pass on the first but from the Brazilian on Wednesday evening, Karim Benzema could well have offered him a second. Before taking the ball, Real number 9 asked his young teammate if he wanted to take the penalty. A proposal refused by the winger who preferred to trust his captain.

“Do you want it? Do you want it?” the Frenchman asked his teammate, before finally grabbing the ball and taking Ederson on the wrong foot. A scene that honors the two men and testifies to their humility, the day after a match that they have become heroes.
Scorer last night, Karim Benzema had yet offered Rodrygo to let him take the decisive penalty to give him the hat-trick. A proposal refused by the winger who preferred to trust his captain. Benzema then took the City goalkeeper on the wrong foot and sent his team to the Champions League final.
