On Wednesday morning, Paco Alcácer trained for the first time under the orders of Luis Enrique on the Tito Vilanova field at the Ciutat Esportiva. He reported for duty along with the other Spain internationals that were involved in the 8-0 defeat of Liechtenstein, while Ivan Rakitic was also back after scoring in Croatia’s 1-1 draw with Turkey.

The numbers were boosted by the presence of four members of Barça B, namely Marlon, Moisés, Sarsaneda and Carbonell.

Leo Messi meanwhile is still having some trouble with his hamstring. Although he did join in with the first part of the session, he then separated from the group to do specific recovery exercises.
