The final of the Eurocup will be played on Sunday. Whatever happens, there will be a player who makes a European double: Champions and Copa del Rey. If Italy wins the title, Jorginho will have the double crown; on the contrary, if England does, it will be Mason Mount, Ben Chilwell and Reece James.
They will not be the first to get it. These are the footballers who, so far, have won the European Championship and the Champions League in the same season:
The year 2016 was the year of Portugal. The Portuguese won the title in the final of the European Championship in France against the French national team, who played at home. Pepe led his defense. He did the same at Real Madrid, which raised the Champions League.
Cristiano Ronaldo also participated in that Portuguese team. The scorer and leader of Real Madrid was also the king of Portugal. He could not participate in the final of the Eurocup due to injury. If in the Champions League, there he scored his penalty in the shootout.
Fernando Torres will never forget 2012. El Niño won his long-awaited Champions League. He did it with Chelsea, in the penalty shoot-out. He also won the Euro with Spain. He scored in the final.
Juan Mata played alongside Fernando Torres for Chelsea and the Spanish national team. The Asturian was in the best of form and was a key player in the first Champions League in Chelsea’s history and in the third Spanish European Championship.
