The Barcelona Internationals will not play in Mexico

The friendly match against Mexico August 11 has become a brown for the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF). The meeting will take place on Mexican soil to mark the bicentenary of its independence.  Mexico is looking forward the game although it is possible that the Mexican Federation officials carried a major disappointment.

To begin with, Barca internationals go back to training on 9 August and it would not be normal for the coach, Vicente del Bosque, to call them to play the game because their fitness level would not be adequate and the trip is not comfortable. Adding to the Barca absences, there are the possible casualties of the players of Real Madrid. In principle, Mourinho, coach of the team, had  set  August 2 as the date of return to work. However, Captain Iker Casillas's idea is to ask the Portuguese to grant them an extra week of rest after the very hard World Cup.

It remains to be seen if Mourinho accepts that , the Real Madrid players would be in a situation similar to the one of the Catalans as they return to work on August 9 and only have room for play in the match against Mexico conditions. The law also covers the absence of international.  The Spanish Football Association (SFA) has made it clear that the players are entitled to a month's vacation. In its day, RFEF president Angel Maria Villar, ensured that Spain would dispute the friendly with its main stars.  But  the World Cup win can radically changed the plans and it is quite possible that for the match against Mexico, Del Bosque will be forced to call players less known. Nor should we forget that the reputation of the selection has increased after their victory in South Africa and  it would not be too positive  to go with a team B.  The situation is complicated.
