The intent of this thread is to discuss Barcelona players (and even former players) when they are on international duty playing for their countries. With the World Cup set to kick off roughly a month from now, the qualified nations are releasing their initial 30-player squads. These will be reduced to the mandatory 23-man squads by June 1st. Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque is set to officially announce his 30-man squad on Tuesday. The full list has already been posted on the RFEF website. Barcelona players on the list include: Valdés Piqué Puyol Busquets Iniesta Xavi Pedro So it looks like those that we had hoped for (Valdes, Pedro) were rewarded for the great season they have had. Just a matter now of whether they will survive the cut down to 23. Fabregas and Capdevila are two other Catalans also named in the list. Any other countries put out their list that include Barcelona players? We can even discuss former players like the two Gios (Van Bronckhort and Dos Santos), Eto'o, Van Bommel, etc.
