Barcelona defender Marc Bartra is preparing to make his debut for Spain.

The 22-year-old was called up by La Roja earlier this week after club-mate Cesc Fabregas pulled out of their friendlies with Equatorial Guinea and South Africa injured.

"It is the biggest thing you can do as a footballer," Bartra, who has previously represented Catalonia, told Marca.

"There are very good players (in the squad) but I have to be prepared to be ready at any time."
