Holidays at last!

Jordi Clos

The first team of FC Barcelona are now officially on holiday. The last players to sign off for Christmas were the Catalan internationals who faced Argentina in the Camp Nou.

After an historic year of unparalleled excitement and success, the FC Barcelona senior football squad are now enjoying their Christmas break. Most of the players started their holidays directly on returning from Kuwait while the Catalan internationals took part in the friendly against Argentina on Tuesday.

The last match

All of them played an active role (at least in the first half) in Catalonia’s 4-2 defeat of Argentina, in what was Johan Cruyff’s first game in charge of the national squad. Busquets played the full 90 minutes while Bojan scored his second goal in two days.
