The World Cup launches on Friday, June 11th, and it has a decidedly blaugrana flavor to it. FC Barcelona sent 14 of its players to South Africa to take on the world and, in some cases, each other, in the greatest event on Planet Earth. Mexico and Barça player Rafa Marquez opens the month-long proceedings as Mexico takes on hosts South Africa. The group stage ends on June 25, when Brazil takes on Portgual and Spain faces Chile. Below is a blaugrana World Cup schedule. Consult your local listing for game times.
With the World Cup officially kicking off on Friday, we present you with this song/video by Shakira celebrating the event soon to take place in South Africa. The video contains a few very special cameo appearances by none other than Barça’s very own Pique, Alves, Marquez and Messi. You can also catch these same players in the making of video posted below.
The midfielder has renewed his contract, which now lasts until 2016.
In Barça until he will be 36 years old. He signed what could be the last contract signed by Laporta.
Pedro also renewed his link with the blaugrana club, which lasts now until 2015.
Xavi can become the player who has worn for longest the Barça jersey, since he made his debut when he was just 18.
Cesc tries for the last time convincing Wenger.
Rosell: “I want to be everyone’s president.” Sandro wanted to pay tribute to Manel Vich*, “the socio’s voice.”
Iniesta, ready to play. Barça’s midfielder went through a medical test and got permission to play.
Basket Barça, to get their 5th cup. Xavi Pascual’s team wants to make this season perfect by winning la Liga. Barça – Caja Laboral (20.30, La 2)
*Manel Vich is Camp Nou’s speaker.
SILVA, LUXURY OPTION
If Barça is not able to sign Cesc, the Canarian, who doesn’t want to leave Spain, awaits Barça’s call.
There is excellent chemistry between him and Villa, Iniesta and Xavi, and his dream is to be blaugrana.
Xavi 2016: “I want to retire in Barça”
Pedro 2015: They have increased his fee and his buy-out clause, which is now 90 million€.
Elections: All the candidates’ electoral manifesto in great detail.
World Cup: Iniesta is only doubtful for the World Cup’s first match.
Basket Barça has a date with history. Barça – Caja Laboral (20.30, La 2).

After several months of being “almost ready to launch,” Leo Messi’s Official Website is up and running. For fans of FC Barcelona and Argentine International Lionel Messi (22), it seems worth the wait.
Pedrito. Pedro. Don Pedro. The goal-scoring explosion that is FC Barcelona and Spanish International forward Pedro Rodriguez (22) seems to know no bounds. He made history with Barcelona by being the only player (the only one, throughout the history of football!) to score in every competition in which his team could compete (all six of them) in a single season, and now, based on his performance in Spain’s last friendly match before the World Cup, he seems ready to add to that list.
A LA BARÇA! (Like Barça)
Spain 6 – 0 Poland
La selección enjoyed a match with a good performance and goals against Poland in the finest blaugrana style.
Iniesta and Xavi’s recital. Villa, Silva, Alonso, Cesc, Torres and Pedro scored; Pedro for the first time.
There is a replacement for Touré: Barça keeps an eye on the midfielders whose price is reasonable, their talent verified and their profile alike the Ivorian’s. They would be: Capoue, Diarra, Palacios and Sissoko.
Van der Wiel, crazy for Barça and Barcelona.
Scandal! Competition (Committee) fines Guardiola.
[Non Barça Related]
Rafa Benítez is now the new Inter coach.
R.Madrid: Higuaín’s goals are more decisive and cheaper that Cristiano’s
Ibrahimovic will not stay in Barça. The striker is not in Guardiola’s planning for the next season.
Touré to City. The English club will increase their offer for the blaugrana midfielder and the transfer is getting closer.
Guardiola has been fined 15.000€!
Barça Elections: The second debate was light.
Spain 6 – 0 Poland. A made in Barça recital. Iniesta had to be substituted for precaution, he felt some discomfort on his leg.
As Spain plays their last friendly against Poland in Murcia before heading to the World Cup tournament proper, we here at totalBarça thought you might enjoy more pictures of the predominantly blaugrana Spanish National Team in training. Feel free to add your comments about the pictures, about Spain’s game as it happens, or about the World Cup in general (just click on continue reading).
