Catalonia are an international team from Europe who are best known for playing friendly matches against high calibre opposition.
The Catalonia national team is made up of Spanish footballers who were born in the Catalonian region. As they are not registered to FIFA or UEFA, the side is only permitted to play friendly matches.

As matches are relatively rare, the standard of player to represent the team is usually high. During the 1950s, Argentine born Alfredo Di Stefano guest starred in the side’s 6-2 win against Bologna.
In the last decade, the team has often provided warm up matches for major nations about to participate in a tournament. In 2002, the side took on Brazil just before they entered the World Cup. The Brazilians, who went on to win the tournament, won the match 3-1. Recently, a star studded line up under new manager Johann Cruyff took on Argentina. Many first teamers such as Carlos Puyol, Cesc Fabregas, Xavi and Gerard Pique played as Catalonia triumphed 4-2.
