The best Spanish team in history was based on FC Barcelona players. But those times have gone to a better life and right now Spain has only two Barça holders. Busquets and Jordi Alba are the survivors
The FC Barcelona has left to be important for the Spanish selection. The most victorious cycle of the history of Spain was with a base of Barcelona footballers, but to day of today only remains a trace of this. In the last announcement of Robert Moreno only there were two players of the Barça: Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.
Taking into account to footballers with Barcelona past, the list would go up to four, since it would be necessary to add to Thiago Alcántara, that besides is canterano, and to Paco Alcácer. But any of them is already culé, with what the reality is that Spain and the Barcelona no longer go of the hand. In the last meeting of the selection in front of the Islands Feroe, in fact, there was not any blaugrana in the eleven initial.
The last time that Spain had gone out to the field without any barcelonista was on 11 October 2018 in front of Wales, with Luis Enrique in the bench. The tendency is increasingly evident and does not seem that it go to change in the near future. The Masia is still working, but the players are not arriving to the first team like antaño. This influences in a selection that is virando in another direction.
In this last list there was alone three players of the Real Madrid, Sergio Bouquets, Dani Carvajal and Dani Ceballos, that is yielded in the Arsenal. But what himself there was was a total of eight with present or past madridista. In addition to the three mentioned, Mario Beautiful, Diego Llorente, Pablo Sarabia, Dani Parejo and Rodrigo Moreno were canteranos of the white group and bred in the Factory.
The Barça no longer is important in Spain
Every time there are more footballers with past madridista in Spain, while the presence of culés or ex culés decrece with the years. A data demoledor is that the Barcelona does not attain that it debut a player of his team from the 2016, when it did it Sergi Roberto. The one of Reus, in fact, was not summoned for this stop and, with his new place of mediocentro goes to have complicated to play with Spain because the competition is greater.
In the Barça there is canteranos that in the future could be important in Spain, but for this before have to consolidate and have minutes. Carles Aleñá, already in the first team, Riqui Puig or Ansu Fati (is in formalities to achieve the passport) could finish being stars in the selection. But any of them will attain it while they are not important in his club. Ojalá, on the contrary of what sucede in the Madrid, any have to leave of Can Barça to be able to be international absolute.
