This is the first time that Zidane has called up Luca – an aspiring goalkeeper who has played for the club’s third division reserve team Real Madrid Castilla – for a competitive game.

He is in the squad as third-choice goalkeeper due to first-choice keeper Keylor Navas being injured.

Zidane, 44, also has his three other sons – Enzo, Theo and Elyaz – in Real’s youth academy. All four boys have double French-Spanish nationality, as Zidane’s wife Veronique is Spanish.

The UEFA Super Cup is European football’s traditional curtain-raiser for the new season, played between the winners of the Champions League and the Europa League. This year it will be staged in the Norwegian city Trondheim.

Zidane will be without Portuguese veterans Cristiano Ronaldo and Pepe, who are both still on holiday, plus also Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos, who only returned from their holidays on Saturday.
