Unprecedented? No. Impossible? Far from it. The Eurocup is now moving on to its semi-finals and awaiting what happens on Tuesday and Wednesday. With just three games left to find Italy’s heir as the winner of the competition, we review the history of players who have won the UEFA Champions League and weeks later the most important national team tournament on the old continent.

Real Madrid beat Borussia Dortmund at Wembley to put now only seven players with the possibility of winning the Eurocup days after winning the Orejona. Dani Carvajal, Nacho, Joselu, Aurélien Tchouaméni, Eduardo Camavinga, Ferland Mendy and Jude Bellinghamthe only ones who can now join a list of up to 14 players who have lifted both trophies in a space of just 6 or 7 weeks.

It all started in 1964, to be precise. Inter Milan won the old European Cup with the Spaniard Luis Suárez as their flag bearer.. Weeks later, the legendary La Roja striker would beat the Soviet Union 2-1 in Madrid to open a streak with just 13 other players until this week in Germany. 24 years later, five Dutch players would achieve it. PSV was the champion of the Orejona after beating Benfica on penalties and the Van Breukelen, Ronald Koeman, Van Aerle, Vanenburg and Kieft closed the circle with a 2-0 win over the USSR in Munich. It was the day of that legendary Marco Van Basten volley at the Olympic Stadium.

Who’s next? France joins the list with Zinedine Zidane and Nicolas Anelka. Part of that Real Madrid vs. Valencia (3-0) in the final in Paris in 2000, They would beat Italy 2-1 weeks later in the Euro Cup final in the Netherlands-Belgium. Again and 12 summers later, the duo Fernando Torres-Juan Mata would do it with both Chelsea and Spain in the Euro final with a 4-0 victory over ItalySince that edition there have always been more names added to the general table.

And Cristiano Ronaldo and Pepe would be the next to join in. Portugal beat France at the Stade France in 2016 with a right-footed shot from Eder which is already part of the Seleção’s history. Both players had just defeated Atlético de Madrid at San Siro a few weeks ago in the Champions League final. Finally, in this sense, the Jorginho-Emerson Palmieri duo (Italy and Chelsea) emerges after the victory with the Azzurri in London against England in the last edition of the European Championship.

When are the Euro semi-finals?

There are only 270 minutes left in an edition marked by surprises and poor performances by the powers. Spain and France open the semi-finals on Tuesday in a bid to win their first final in several years. Twenty-four hours later, current runners-up England will take on the Netherlands. at Signal Iduana Park in Dortmund. On July 14, the final in Berlin.
