    Yup. And they'll need him so bad in calcio that he'll take playing time away from the others.


    And just like that the Udes have equalized.

    Winning the Supercopa was also great, but I guess I have to thank Valdes for that :laugh:

    We should re-instate the Blaugranas on International duty thread, but in the meantime...

    La Furia Roja vs. Uruguay today looks lively from the start.

    For us, VV, Puyol, Alba, Busquets, Cesc, Iniesta, and Pedro are all starters today.

    For LPB, Ramos is playing. Call it a tax on excellence, I guess. :rolleyes:

    The other starters are Azpilicueta, Cazorla, and Mata.

    edit: the Uru GK spills a Cesc long-range shot right at his gloves. 1-0 España

    edit2: When was the last time España played with NO players from La Liga outside Barça and LPB?

    Pedro can't stop scoring for country, can't start scoring for club. :rolleyes:

    Spain 2-1 Uruguay

    edit: Villa and Pique on in the 2nd half, upping the total Barça appearances in this friendly to 9.

    9 appearances but "only" 8 on at a time max as Pique replace Puyol. Villa almost scores. Pique assists Pedro's goal. Mata assisted Cesc's (as did the keeper).

    I'm more concerned about the disparity in national team work our guys have to do compared to other clubs. This, plus the fact the game is being played in Qatar... it all points to a bad case of 'FIFA virus' vs. Getafe.

    If I were Jordi/Tito, I'd heavily rotate this weekend.

    Great goal off a beautiful pass from Cesc to... Pedro!

    And Del Bosque subs Pedro right away. Maybe he can bring some of that magic back from the desert.

    Another Pedro, brilliant pass from Cesc, and brilliant run by Pedro sets up a tap in for him, after Villa lays it off for Cesc to thread the needle. Wow all Barca, couldn't have seen that coming. And Pedro is out to cheers for Negredo. Down to 6 Barca players I believe.

    Now Alba off we have a minority of Barca players.

    Forgot that Isco came on for Iniesta - only 4 Barca players, yikes.

    Wait, recount, still on are Villa, Cesc, Busquets, Pique and Valdes, so probably just enough to hold our lead :)

    Not sure if Puyol's sheep, Queca, is going to like Carles bringing home an Arabian Oryx.

    That was one of the worst PK's I've ever seen Ronaldinho take.

    Argentina is putting on a clinic vs. Sweden. The team could have scored five in that half.

    Netherlands team (starters especially) looks so different from the squad that came close in the World Cup and then underperformed in Euros, perhaps necessary given that downward trajectory. Not sure how many are injured. Affelay nowhere in sight - is he hurt?

    Also can Hummels really play DM (and is he doing so)? I am not watching but they listed him as a midfielder when I looked up their starters. If so, sounds even more like the CB for us but we'll have to pay Javi Martinez / Silva money for him.
