Pique Jeered During Spain Game

Pique Jeered During Spain Game

After not being afraid to air his views on the Catalonia Independence Referendum, Gerard Pique endured a rough ride as Spain qualified for the 2018 World Cup Finals, in Russia.

The 30-year-old Barcelona defender, who is in support of independence for Catalonia, was jeered every time he touched the ball as Spain beat Albania 3-0 to qualify for the 2018 Finals.

The game, played in Alicante, saw Spain cruise to a 3-0 half-time lead with the goals coming from Rodrigo, Isco and Thiago.

With Italy only drawing 1-1 with Macedonia, Spain have qualified with one-game remaining.

However, Pique will be missing from that game as he`s suspended after picking up a yellow card in the second half of the match against Albania when he pulled back Armand Sadiku.

Some might be pleased for a bit of respite but Pique has never been one to hide and never afraid of airing his views.
