Zinedine Zidane gives his son Luca first Real Madrid start before Champions League final

Talk about nepotism, eh?

Zinedine Zidane has picked his goalkeeping son Luca to start between the sticks for Real Madrid today in their La Liga match against Villarreal.

Madrid have an outside chance of finishing second in the Spanish league, with Los Blancos needing all three points as well as cross-city rivals Atletico Madrid to lose their season finale against Eibar.

But despite that, Zidane has given his second-oldest son his first-team debut in the side.

Keylor Navas has seemingly been rested for this one ahead of Madrid’s Champions League final clash against Liverpool next week.

But it seems a little fishy that second-choice Kiko Casilla has been overlooked.

20-year-old Luca has been a mainstay in Madrid’s Castilla B-team this season but has yet to play for the senior side.

The youngster has a bit of a reputation in Spain for a succession of high-profile blunders, with rumours around the club claiming Zidane is over-protective of his sons.

Last season, Luca’s older brother Enzo Zidane was seemingly given more opportunities than he deserved at the club, before he eventually being sold to Alaves last summer.

Whitecaps’ Kendall Waston named to Costa Rica squad for World Cup

Whitecaps’ Kendall Waston named to Costa Rica squad for World Cup

Vancouver Whitecaps captain Kendall Waston has been named to Costa Rica’s 23-man roster for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Russia.

This will be the defender’s first-ever World Cup appearance. He was named to Costa Rica’s provisional 30-man roster in 2014 but was one of the team’s final two cuts.

Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson announced Watson had been named to the team after the team’s practice Monday as the players gathered at centre field. Defender Sean Franklin sprayed some water on Waston, whose wife and young son surprised him on the pitch.

“It’s a huge accomplishment,” Watson said. “I feel very happy, very proud. There are a lot of emotions going on at this moment.

“In my mind I remember four year ago. It’s a different feeling. Now I can enjoy this moment.”

Group play commences on June 14, with Costa Rica facing Serbia (June 17), Brazil (June 22), and Switzerland (June 27) in Group E. Prior to the tournament, Costa Rica will face Northern Ireland, England, and Belgium in a series of friendlies.

Waston is expected to join the national team following Vancouver’s match against New England Revolution on May 26 at BC Place.

Waston scored an added-time equalizer against Honduras in qualifying last year to punch Costa Rica’s trip to Russia.
