Barca land 
in England

Barcelona arrive in England today as their pre-season preparations continue with a training camp at St George's Park.

The Spanish giants, who finished second in the Primera Division last term behind Atletico Madrid, will have sessions at the complex in Burton upon Trent each day from today to Friday before flying to France on Saturday.

Newly-appointed boss Luis Enrique has named a 26-man squad for the trip which features the likes of Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets, Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Pedro - all part of the Spain squad that was eliminated from the World Cup at the group stage, but Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano, beaten finalists at the tournament in Brazil with Argentina, are not.
