But there is one area that Barca really do seem to have improved this season and that is in the stylish facial hair department. Maybe the squad have been inspired by their manager’s designer stubble, but it seems many of the players have begun to sport their very own fashionable face fuzz this season.

Euro Cup Qualifiers ‘Blaugrana’ report: Spain vs. Lithuania

In the ninth group of the Euro Championship 2012 Qualifiers, the Spanish team players were expected to come back after the disappointing appearance during the last friendly game they played against Argentina. Nevertheless, friendly games are always friendly games and during competitions things are different. On Friday night, La Roja was to play against Lithuania in hope of gaining another precious three points. Five Barcelona players were ready for the task, and they were in the starting line-up; those were: Puyol, Pique, Busquets, Iniesta, and Villa. And with a different starting line-up than the usual one, the Spanish players were able to outclass their opponents in a game that assured all La Roja fans that they are still one of the best teams, if not the best team, in the world – and that they are coming strong for the 2012 Euro Cup competition.
