Barcelona trio Eric Garcia, Pedri, and Oscar Mingueza have all been called into the Spain squad for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Luis de la Fuente has called up 22 players for the tournament which is due to start in Japan next month.

Here’s the full list:

Of course, both Garcia and Pedri are currently away with the Spain squad at Euro 2020 and were part of the team that helped beat Croatia 5-3 on Monday to move into the quarter-finals of the tournament.

Spain go on to face Switzerland next on Friday with the semi-finals scheduled for 6-7 July and the final due to take place at Wembley Stadium on July 11.

The Spain Olympic squad is due to fly out to Japan on July 13 and will play a friendly four days later before their first game of the tournament on July 22.

It means an incredibly busy summer for the trio, particularly Pedri, who was given an early holiday at the end of the last campaign after featuring 52 times in his debut season.

The new La Liga season is due to kick off on August 14-15.
