Gerard Pique

Former Spain defender Gerard Pique was back in international action on Monday night, playing for Catalonia.

The Barcelona centre-half, a World Cup and European Championship winner, turned out for the region of north eastern Spain in a friendly against Venezuela in Girona.

Also playing were Stoke striker Bojan Krkic, who scored the opening goal, Brighton full-back Martin Montoya and Southampton midfielder Oriol Romeu.

Espanyol’s Javi Puado secured a 2-1 win for the hosts with a goal three minutes from full-time.

Catalonia is not recognised by FIFA or UEFA so the match did not have official international status
