Barça was the club that brought the most players to the World Cup in Qatar, with a total of 17. But when there is still one last day of the quarterfinals remaining, there are only two culés footballers left in competition. Jules Koundé and Ousmane Dembele.
Tonight, both will play with the French team in a match of maximum interest against the English team, with a pass to the semifinals as a prize.
Yesterday, Raphinha and Brazil said goodbye to the tournament after the loss against Croatia.
Afterwards, Dutch Memphis Depay and Frenkie de Jong also lost, vs Argentina and Leo Messi. None of them participated in the penalty shootout that knocked their team out of the World Cup.
The Spanish team was the one that brought the most Barça players to Qatar with eight names. Eric Garcia, Jordi Alba, Pedro, Gavi, Busquets, Ansu Fati, Ferran torres and Balde. Denmark, with Andreas Christensen,
Ronald Araujo with Uruguay, Marc André ter Stegenwith Germany, and Robert Lewandowski, with Poland, already fell in previous days.
Although they were 17 Barça players in Qatar, some of them did not even debut, such as Eric Garcia, Ter Stegen either Araujo, in his case because he was coming out of an injury. All of them will gradually rejoin the work of FC Barcelona, after a few days off.
