COVID-19 turns into a big concern for the Spanish representative just two days before the start of “Euro2020”. After captain Sergio Busquets, Diego Llorente also tested positive in the last test. The situation is being closely monitored as the number of those affected could increase over the hours: There are many possibilities for other players to be affected, said the president of the Spanish Federation. Llorente thus loses the first challenge against Sweden.
Spain is not the only representative affected by COVID-19, in a similar situation are their rivals in Group E, Sweden. Dejan Kulusevski tested positive the day before after the test he underwent, while earlier midfielder Mattias Svanberg also tested positive.
