Enzo Fernandez has been called up to train with the Real Madrid first team by his father and club manager, Zinedine Zidane.

The 20-year-old was promoted on Wednesday, alongside Martin Odegaard, Marcos Llorente and Carlos Abad, as Zidane Sr. looked to make up the numbers with Karim Benzema, Marcelo, Gareth Bale and Pepe all missing through injury.

Enzo, who is Zizou's eldest son, trained with the first team while Rafael Benitez was in charge, but this was the first time he received such an opportunity since his father took over in January.
