So, they might not be an official country or a team, but they have already built a squad stronger than the half of the world. Imagine if they had something permanent, more people would have more courage to play for their own country. Without getting into politics, what are your opinions on how good their team are and what could they manage if they had the chance?

Their squad is actually pretty decent. Don't think they would be a top team able to rival with squad like that of France, Spain or Belgium but I certainly think they would be better than a lots of other NT in europe like Sweden, Poland and Russia.

Visca Cataluna :) if you play for Cataluna you aren’t called for Spain. Reason why many top class players didn’t play this friendly. Big respect to pique for the sacrifice :)

Players that can join if they want to : kilo Casilla ( Gk), Cesc, Tello, Deulofeu, Alba, Busquets, Sergi Roberto all can be selected and I’m talk only about Barça players... There are Espagnol, Girona, Eibar,Elche that can get called and also masia players like Adama Traoré...

Pique decided to retire from spanish team. Thats why he could afford play.

@Pelle Well maybe not, it would really depend on the form and the situation. Don't forget that some of those team can be pretty inconsistent, which is why I said that.

Catolonia would have a good team to compete in Euro or WC spots, but i doubt they would ever give a serious challenge for the title. They had recent pool of talents, thus they feel like they could be a formidable side and they are right to think, so but still bulk of the team comes from Spain. Players from Spain were just as vital to win WC, and not to mention Ikers saves against Robben that should have ended the contest in favor of the dutch.

Catolonia might become like Iceland or Switzerland or Denmark.. having good runs at times but never consistent to be serious contender in every tournament and just might not qualify to each too.

@Marcus I think, with the players tiki_taka listed above, they can really manage to be a consistent team to succesfully qualify for each tournament.

These players are golden generation who are aging and frankly speaking most of them are good but not world class. Was catalonia always a place where Spain got their best players, and core players?

@Ledley: aka golden generation... which belongs to the history books.

I agree with most ppl, they would have a decent team but they wont be a threat to the biggest powerhouses on a consistent basis.

Of-course, it is political. They are hoping to have solid claims for independence through sports. Nothing rallies up people more than sport. Oldest trick in the books.

@Ledley: The win against Argentinawas 2009 and like the only win against a big powerhouse the last 70 years or so.
