Spain call up for Barca defender Pau Cubarsi, 17

Teenage central defender Pau Cubarsi, who has played just a handful of games for Barcelona, was on Friday called up for Spain’s friendly internationals agaionst Colombia and Brazil.

Should coach Luis de la Fuente hand Cubarsi some time on the pitch, the 17-year-old will become the youngest central defender to play for Spain, surpassing Sergio Ramos who debuted when he was 18.

Cubarsi was integrated into Barca’s first team this season and made his Champions League debut as a starter in the club’s 3-1 victory over Napoli on Tuesday, a result that guaranteed the Catalan club a quarter-final against Paris Saint-Germain.

He has made nine appearances for Barcelona in La Liga and two more in the Copa del Rey.

Spain play Colombia in London on March 22 and Brazil four days later at Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu stadium.
