Tata Marino’s Barça trained this Friday evening at Bukit Jalil National Stadium, the venue that will host tomorrow’s match against an all-star selection of Malaysian players. Jordi Alba, who didn’t train on Thursday, trained alongside his team-mates this evening.
The man of the hour, however, was Cristian Tello, who learned that he was named to the Spain squad by VicentedelBosque for the upcoming international friendly against Ecuador. The players and the manager congratulated Tello just before this evening’s session.
Pedro Rodríguez, who is recovering from a knock to his right calf muscle, was the only player to miss the session. DosSantos and Tello, both of whom have been recovering from injury, trained with the group.
Multitudes in the stands
More than 10,000 spectators, many of whom purchased tickets to watch the session, looked on as the Blaugrana prepared for tomorrow’s match. Leo Messi was once again the most acclaimed player of the squad.
