Barcelona defender Irene Paredes was available for the match against Switzerland, but ended up being ruled out
Irene Paredes could have reached a historic milestone for the Spanish women’s national team on Tuesday, but a silly mistake ended up taking that possibility away from Barcelona’s defence. According to the Spanish press, citing a source from the Royal Spanish Football Federation, the player was available to go to the match this afternoon against Switzerland, in the Nations League, but he ended up being excluded from the squad due to a computer error when the list of women elected was sent to the Federation.

With 99 official matches for Spain, Irene Paredes today dreamed of reaching the 100th match, a feat that only two players have achieved so far: Alexia Putellas and Gini Hermoso.
