Sergi Roberto did not play last Saturday with Spain in their victory over Macedonia. Barcelona's right-back did not play and Dani Carvajal started in that position. For the first time in 12 years, only one Barcelona player started with the national team: Sergio Busquets.

SPORT reported after the game that Sergi Robeto had physical issues on his Achilles tendon. Spain play on Tuesday against England on a friendly match at Wembley. Barcelona would like Roberto to skip that game and come back home earlier.

It's a critical situation at Barcelona's right-back. Aleix Vidal is not in Luis Enrique's plans, Barcelona B youngster Nili Perdomo got injured this weekend on his left knee and Piqué and Jordi Alba are still injured. So Sergi Roberto must stay fit and be ready for Barça's next game.
