Yet more internationals

Berta Brau

There are three more international games on Tuesday evening that feature Barça players. All three are very different games, one is a World Cup qualifier, the other is a friendly, and the third is a decisive Under 21 international.

There are six Barça players in action this evening in three different games. Spain’s Under 21 side face Switzerland, Bolivia take on Uruguay, and France have a friendly with Tunisia. Three very different games.

Bojan, Piqué and Busquets after qualification

Uruguay and Martín Cáceres against Bolivia

After losing to his colleague Leo Messi’s Argentina, Uruguayan Martín Cáceres now faces Bolivia in his second game of the week. Altitude could be the main problem in the Bolivian city of La Paz in a game that kicks off at 16.00 local time (22.00 CET).

But the Uruguayans will also have to contend with a depleted squad following the large number of yellow cards collected in the heated encounter with traditional rivals Argentina. But these enforced changes do not affect Cáceres.

Henry and Abidal in friendly

But although there are no points at stake, plenty of tension is expected in the game in the wake of the incidents that occurred when these two nations last met in a friendly just two years ago. The venue this time will be the Stade de France in Paris.
Yet more internationals
Six more games on Wednesday
Barça players will be involved in six other games on Wednesday. Five of these are qualifying games for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, while the other, between Israel and Italy, and which may feature Gai Asulin, is a European Under 21 play off.
