    Nice job!

    5. As I know Armand Ella doesn't play for Juvenil A anymore. I suppose he has finished playing after that serious injury last summer.
    18. Adama Traore was born in Barcelona and he played for Spain so far. I don't know is it important for you. But yeah, his parents are from Mali and he is dual citizen (Spain/Mali).
    33. Labinot Kabashi is from Kosovo I suppose, but I know that 90% of population there are albanians.

    P.S. Did't know Sanabria is paraguayan. It was surprise for me!

    Not 100% sure, but I think so. At least there is no any info about him for a long time. I have read he has gone nowhere from Barca. Maybe we'll hear something about him soon, but I really doubt it...

    Adama Traore is spanish, as Dimonsss said.
    I don't think Ella plays with another team, he's probably still with Barca but he probably won't continue next year.

    20.Moustapha Seck Spain/?
    23.Ayoub Abiu Oulam Morocco

    Is the Russian goal Keeper Timur still in the Barca youth ranks?

    Tomorrow I look further for you, because I believe there are many more foreign players in the wonderful Barca youth system :barca scarf:

    Haven't heard of him.. he might be if he's very young. He's definitely not in the Juvenil squads.

    Don't think so. So I'll change that to my list. I used the information on the Barcelona website and on this forum. I also called someone of Eidos (game-producer for Football Manager) and they helpen me a little as well. They do have a huge database.

    So Seck's from Spain? For the record: I added players who do have foreign roots as well (like Rafinha). But I don't know if some (Nadir Louah Mhand-Yamna) have two passports. Sometimes it's hard to get a hold of information like birthplaces.

    Aaah ok, thanks alot! I've even seen his name in one of the youth teams some time ago on a website, but that wasn't right probably
