Real Madrid's World Cup winning midfielder — set for Champions League tie against Chelsea — jumps straight in with 'Burnley' during Premier League challenge

The 32-year-old, who won the 2014 FIFA World Cup with Germany in Brazil, after scoring twice in a famous 7-1 thrashing of the hosts in the semi-final, was competing against Austrian defender David Alaba in a quiz for the club's YouTube channel.

The three-time Bundesliga winner with Bayern Munich, who is on his way to landing a third La Liga title with "Los Blancos", was tasked with naming nine teams in England's top flight.
