Eric Garcia was giving little away about his future after playing in Spain’s 2-1 World Cup qualifying win over Georgia on Sunday.

Luis Enrique’s side had to come from behind to take the victory and had looked set to drop points until Dani Olmo’s 92nd-minute winner.

Garcia spoke to reporters about his future and the match after the full-time whistle.

“I‘m focused on what concerns me, now with the national team there is a very important match against Kosovo coming up, and then what comes will come. I don’t know if it will be Barça.

“The team deserved it, against Greece we found a penalty that leveled the game for us and today we competed to the fullest. We deserve it for a spectacular attitude.

Barcelona trio Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, and Pedri all featured in the match. Alba picked up assists for both goals, while Pedri was lucky to escape injury after this shocker of a challenge.

Luis Enrique went on to speak about Pedri after the match and was pretty pleased with his display, particularly in the second half of the match.

“Pedri, in the first half, was pretty much like the whole team and, in the second, he showed the kind of player that he is and the qualities that he has,” he said.

“He was very good with Jordi Alba, with whom he has a good understanding.”

Yet the coach wasn’t too happy with his team’s overall performance and said he’s “pretty worried” ahead of Wednesday’s match against Kosovo after seeing his team forced to come from behind and needing a late goal to seal the win.
