Barcelona 3, Real Madrid 0
Three Barcelona players but none from arch-rivals Real Madrid are in Spain's soccer squad for the Sydney Olympics.
Gabri, Xavi and Puyol are the Barcelona trio in the party named by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) on Friday. No over-age (23) player has been selected.
Neither Real Madrid's young goalkeeper Iker Casillas, nor Barcelona's recent signing from Valencia, Gerard, who both featured in the initial list for the Olympics have been included.
These two players are almost certain to feature in national coach Jose Antonio Camacho's squad for the World Cup qualifier against Bosnia on September 2 to be announced on Saturday.
Goalkeepers: Daniel Aranzubia (Athletic Bilbao), Felip Ortiz (Extremadura)
Defenders: Ivan Amaya (Atletico Madrid), Joan Capdevilla (Deportivo Coruna), Jose Maria Lacruz (Athletic Bilbao), Carlos Marchena (Benfica), Carles Puyol (Barcelona), Unai (Villareal)
Midfielders: David Albeda (Valencia), Jordi Ferron (Zaragoza), Gabri (Barcelona), Ismael (Racing Santander), Toni Velemazan (Espanyol), Xavi (Barcelona)
Forwards: Miguel Angulo (Valencia), Jose Mari (AC Milan), Raul Tamudo (Espanyol), Alberto Luque (Real Mallorca).
