Alejandro Balde has been sent home from Spain’s national team camp after picking up an injury against Scotland.

The left-back played the first half, but did not reappear in the second. Some media claim that it is an injury, but there is still no concrete confirmation from Barcelona or Spain about it.

Spain eventually won the match 2-0, but this is terrible news for Balde, who was nominated for the Golden Boy award.

It adds to Barcelona’s seemingly never-ending injury woes. Just as the Blaugrana are recovering from an injury, they are losing another regular starter.

Balde has been replaced in the Spain squad by Real Betis left-back Alfonso Pedraza.

This is a huge loss for Xavi as his side face a difficult calendar of fixtures after the international break, with the clasico against Real Madrid on the horizon.
