That the Spanish team is going to play a match in Barcelona 18 years later is not particularly exciting news for the Government.
Far from applauding the fact that the national team is going to play a friendly at Espanyol’s stadium on March 29, the vice president of the Generalitat, Jordi Puigner, has stated: “What I would like to see in Barcelona is a Spain-Catalonia”. “It’s what we work for,” added the leader of Junts, referring to the achievement of the independence process as a preliminary step to the dispute of matches between the Spanish team and an official team from Catalonia.
More equidistant has been the mayor of Barcelona, Ada Colau, who has framed the landing of the national team in “sporting normality” and has wished “luck” to “the different teams”, that is, both the Spanish team and the one that will be their rival in the friendly match, Albania.
