Abidal played only one competitive match in Albania. He started the eleven Blanc arranged that France got a victory suffered.


The Blaugrana were international stars of the night selections, especially in Spain and Chile involving the largest number of international club.

In the match played at the AFG Arena St. Gallen to shine Andres Iniesta, Cesc Fabregas and Alexis Sanchez. While La Mancha, who played the second half, he authored a goal and provided the criteria and character set of Vicente del Bosque, attending Fàbregas in the tie, the Chilean in the first period showed his speed and ability to overflow from the OMC, which went crazy at the makeshift central pair Javi Martinez-Albiol. Vargas attended the 0-2 and failed to score the third but would adjust his shot so that he was high. Still, while gasoline came to Chile, Alexis was able to show their best weapons. As for Cesc, showed that continues to mark the aforementioned scoring run and the 3-2 tie to penalties.

David Villa was hurt by the weak role of Spain in the first forty-five minutes. No defensive pressure and low combined capacity in the field axis, the Spanish striker had few occasions. The Spaniard tried three times, the best one volley in the final 18 minutes that neutralized Bravo. He supplied the second time Peter, who turned down the left opening the field and looking for one on one.

Carles Puyol lives this week the happiest days in recent months. And the captain of FC Barcelona began to see light at the end of the tunnel as a major injury to his left knee has not given respite. Such has been the extent of it that participated in only four of the last 37 matches played for the club, something unusual in a key man in both the field and inside the locker room. These four games were an exercise in solidarity. It was not to play but would not leave the team in all three classics thrown in Madrid and the Champions League final.

The '5 'Barca has successfully completed the last three training sessions with the group, reduced in these days because of the exodus of internationals. Even without the medical, La Pobla has participated in rounds and other tactical exercises with the captain smiles again. In training yesterday as he was more than happy, accompanied by Maxwell, Afellay, Pinto, Fontàs and team players, did not stop cheering for the usual round were even more entertaining.

Follow the pace so far, it seems that the captain will come into the squad for the next match against Real Sociedad. The discharge should arrive just before traveling to San Sebastian but it is difficult to think that this shift may own. Guardiola will want to go with the rest of the shipment, and if the match is right, make him play a few minutes. His return as a starter would be next September 13 in the first Champions League match of the season against Milan at the Nou Camp.

Pep Guardiola is the first to crave the return of captain.

His companions, who have continued to have the support of their captain, they could be again one of the mainstays of the team on the pitch.

Low Maxwell, now trains with the squad, coupled with Peak and Adriano, who are working out separate plans have been dismantled Barça when forming the starting lineup. So much so that against Villarreal Guardiola fielded a three-man defense which was the only pure defender Abidal. That's why the return of 'Puyi' is one of the most anticipated.

The gray days of La Pobla come to an end. After spending one of the worst bouts of his playing career, his recovery is going at full speed.

On June 1 Dr. Ramon Cugat, under the supervision of the physician Ricard Pruna first team, underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove a loose body in his left knee, following a blow he received in the match against Malaga, husked until it was loose in his knee. Puyol suffered at the end of last season and now, seven months through injury, is to return.

Puyol as nobody has tried to shorten their recovery, even giving up their holidays and daily training session in double recovery by the Juanjo Brau, but luckily for everyone, his return to first team is getting closer.

Farewell to the Selection

Although the player has not confirmed anything about it, the latest rumors also suggest that the captain of the Spanish football team could say goodbye to the Red. After the slump experienced as a result of his serious injury, Puyol would be considering leaving their participation in the national team to focus solely on his career at FC Barcelona. (via SPORT)

The entrance to Cazorla gave fluidity to the game even more offensive Selection Contreras and the expulsion of a violent tackle on midfielder Alonso himself opened the way to victory for the 'Red'.

Chile tried to break the continuity of the Spanish game with some input at the wrong time and with various substitutions but the selection to the end and squeezed his prize was controversially, when the party already dying when the match the referee signaled a penalty committed on Arbeloa doubtful .

The gal taking charge of and take responsibility for making the launch was Cesc Fabregas. The Arenys adjusted his shot to the right but Bravo stopped her with distress, so badly for the Chilean goal to rebound landed at the feet of Cesc himself that, this time, did not spare the empty net.
