Who has won a Champions League and EURO double in the same season?

Dani Carvajal and Nacho are just the 11th and 12th players to have won the UEFA European Championship and the UEFA Champions League in the same summer.

Dani Carvajal and Nacho have joined the elite club of players to have won the UEFA European Championship and UEFA Champions League in the same summer.

Carvajal and Nacho, who lifted the UEFA Champions League trophy with Real Madrid in June, added the Henri Delaunay Cup to their trophy cabinet thanks to Spain's 2-1 victory over England in the EURO 2024 final in Berlin, denying their Madrid team-mate Jude Bellingham of England a place in the same club.

Carvajal and Nacho follow in the footsteps of just ten other players to have achieved that particular feat, Jorginho doing so with Chelsea and Italy in 2021.

To qualify as 'double winners', players must have appeared in both winning finals. Joselu, a part of the Madrid team who beat Borussia Dortmund at Wembley in June, was an unused substitute against England.

European Cup-EURO double winners

1964: Luis Suárez (Inter & Spain)
1988: Hans van Breukelen, Ronald Koeman, Berry van Aerle, Gerald Vanenburg (PSV Eindhoven & Netherlands)
2012: Fernando Torres, Juan Mata (Chelsea & Spain)
2016: Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe (Real Madrid & Portugal)
2020: Jorginho (Chelsea and Italy)
2024: Dani Carvajal, Nacho (Real Madrid and Spain)

Champions League final highlights: Dortmund 0-2 Real Madrid

Wim Kieft is not on the list. Despite claiming the 1988 European Cup with PSV, he did not make it off the bench with the Netherlands in the 1988 UEFA European Championship final.

Former Real Madrid striker Nicolas Anelka met the same fate with France in 2000, while team-mate Christian Karembeu fared slightly worse – he was an unused squad member in the finals of both the 2000 UEFA Champions League and UEFA EURO 2000 (although he had been on the pitch to win the UEFA Champions League and 1998 FIFA World Cup two summers previously).

No one has won the EURO and the UEFA Europa League/UEFA Cup trophies in the same summer since 1996, when Bayern stars Markus Babbel, Thomas Helmer, Thomas Strunz, Christian Ziege, Mehmet Scholl and Jürgen Klinsmann went on to win the EURO with Germany.

European Cup-World Cup double winners

1974: Sepp Maier, Paul Breitner, Hans-Georg Schwarzenbeck, Franz Beckenbauer, Gerd Müller, Uli Hoeness (Bayern & West Germany)
1998
: Christian Karembeu (Real Madrid & France)
2002
: Roberto Carlos (Real Madrid & Brazil)
2018: Raphaël Varane (Real Madrid & France)

At the 2018 World Cup, Raphaël Varane had a doubly special feeling as he landed his second major winners' medal of the summer, having picked up the most important trophy in European club football with Madrid a few weeks earlier.

Sami Khedira nearly joined the same band in 2014, but an injury in the warm-up prevented him from turning out for Germany in their World Cup final triumph against Argentina. He had tasted UEFA Champions League glory with Madrid less than two months before.
