First time so much players from Eibar are in I think?

Unfortunately many players are missing as well.

Who're the major ones missing for you?

Personally at first I thought about Muniain, Rico, Agirretxe (injured?), Illarramendi, Raul Garcia?

From abroad possibilities could've been several players called, but for different reasons not called are: Monreal and Arteta (Arsenal), Garrido (Norwich?), Javi Martinez and Xabi Alonso (Bayern), Herrera (Man Utd), Ruffier (Sainté), Llorente (Juventus), Amorebieta (Fulham?) and anyone else I forget.

Wow, I am not too motivated with these games lately but watching Julio Salinas commenting this game makes it even worse. :yuck: Anyway, I will watch it. I think Catalonia has a better team tonight (not a better 'possible' team) but we play home so it should be tight.

You can watch it here:

Horrible second half... Overall better Catalonia so we should be happy with the draw. The list was terrible, having to play the second half with two leftbacks.. :rolleyes:

I was very interested in watching Eneko Bóveda and Ander Capa. The first was decent, the second did not have his best night. On the other hand, two of the other not-so-established were pretty good in the second half, Roberto Torres and Dani García. In fact, Torres was EH's best player together with Gorka and Aritz IMO. I don't know if he plays like this every weekend but he shinned for moments, outplayed some of Catalonia defenders and always had 'bad intentions' in his movements, shot from everywhere. A player worth taking a look.

In Catalonia, who else but Xavi and Sergio García were their best players.

Anyway, one more game in a road to nowhere.
