Click through the mini-gallery above to see the three striking options for SA's Real Madrid Dream Team!

‘Raul’ Gonzalez Blanco (1992-2010)

Madrid born and bred, Raul is Real Madrid through and through. Making his debut at the tender age of 17, his knack for goals was undeniable. He scored in two of the three UEFA Champions League finals that he played in—2000 and 2002. His ability to stay a key member of the club for 19 years is a testament, to his ability as a player. Making a record 741 appearances, he scored a total of 323 goals and assisted 108 times. By the end of his career, Raul won an impressive amount of accolades. He won LaLiga six times, the UEFA Champions League three times, the UEFA Super Cup once, the Spanish Super Cup four times, and he also won the Intercontinental Cup twice.

‘Ronaldo’ Luis Nazario de Lima (2002-2007)

Regarded by some as simply the best striker the game has ever seen, Ronaldo was something truly special. He was strong, quick, powerful, skillful and above all, an exceptionally clinical goal scorer. Once at Madrid, the goals started flowing. During his time at the club, Ronaldo won two LaLiga titles, one Intercontinental Cup, two Spanish Super Cups, and one Spanish Cup. His goal tally at the Bernabeu was seriously impressive. In 177 matches, the Brazilian scored 104 goals and assisted 34 times.

Karim Benzema (2009-present)

Karim Benzema has been nothing but a model of consistency in Real. An incredibly classy finisher, the Frenchman has contributed to the club’s unprecedented success over the last five years. To date, the Los Blancos number nine has represented the all-Whites 482 times, scoring 236 goals and assisting 130 times. Benzema has won four UEFA Champions League titles, two LaLiga titles, four UEFA Super Cups, four FIFA Club World Cups, two Spanish Cups, and two Spanish Super Cups. The Frenchman so often unsung and unnoticed, has played a crucial role in the history of this famed football club.
