Barca's Eto'o included in squad for Celtic clash

February 18, 2008

Samuel Eto'o has been included in the Barcelona squad for the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against Celtic on Wednesday night.

Eto'o picked up a thigh injury while playing for Cameroon at the African Nations Cup and missed Barca's 2-1 win at Real Zaragoza on Saturday.

But he is in contention for the clash in Glasgow, meaning coach Frank Rijkaard will have his `fab four' of Eto'o, Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho and Thierry Henry all available for the first time since August.

Sylvinho also returns to the squad after missing the last two games through injury.

But there is no place for teenage striker Bojan Krkic, Gianluca Zambrotta or Edmilson, while Oleguer Presas, Santi Ezquerro and goalkeeper Albert Jorquera are all still injured.

Squad: Valdes, Pinto; Puyol, Thuram, Marquez, Milito, Abidal, Sylvinho; Toure, Xavi, Iniesta, Deco, Gudjohnsen, Ronaldinho, Messi, Henry, Eto'o, Giovani.
