Just a week ago, Spain received some bad news that could have jeopardized its Euro 2020 participation. While captain Sergio Busquets has tested positive for the coronavirus, the national team is suddenly faced with the prospect of a COVID-19 outbreak.
Busquets left the team’s training camp and the rest of the team was forced into isolation. Everyone had to be tested and retested.
Spain coach Luis Enrique has had to hastily put together a parallel team in case more players are injured. Personal training procedures have been developed. The team’s final warm-up match had to be played with the Under-21 team.
Fears increased when a second player, defender Diego Llorente, tested positive a few days later, and Spanish Football Federation president Luis Rubiales said more positive results were likely. More players have been pulled from their vacations to join the parallel training bubble.
It was a bleak look for the Red On the eve of the tournament, which was delayed by a year due to the pandemic.
But Spain is somehow back to normal ahead of the opening Group E match against Sweden today in Seville.
Little by little, the good news started pouring in. Llorente’s test result turned out to be a false positive. The government rushed to vaccinate the entire group. The players were allowed to train together again after tests remained negative.
Spain will be closer to full power when they face the Swedes at La Cartuja.
“We all see this as a ‘glass half full’ situation,” Llorente said. “It made us stronger as a group and as a team. He can help us mentally in these upcoming matches. It would be all right if we all rowed in the same direction, and that’s the lesson we need to learn from this week.”

Sweden will miss their veteran star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who ended his five-year international retirement in March but was forced to exclude himself from Euro 2020 due to a knee injury.
And it is likely to lead the attack, the Swedish Alexander Isak, 21, who plays for Real Sociedad in the Spanish League.
“It’s going to be my first final. That’s what worries me the most,” Isaacs said. UEFA.com. “The fact that we start against Spain is very interesting as I play daily football.”
Because of the virus, the match will take place in Seville instead of Bilbao, the Spanish city that was originally chosen as the host. But the high infection rate of the virus in the northern part of the country has forced UEFA to relocate.
About 16,000 fans will be able to attend La Cartuja matches in the southern city of Seville, where Spain will also play other group matches against Poland and Slovakia. The quarter-final match will also be played in La Cartuja.
Local officials have canceled the requirement that fans test negative to attend matches after many complained that they were not told the requirement at the time of purchase.
The Spanish side only had their first full training on Saturday when Enrique began deciding who would replace Busquets, the only player left in the squad that was part of the 2010 World Cup winning squad. Manchester City’s Rodri Hernandez will be a potential replacement for Busquets. In midfield on Monday.
This is the third time in a row that Spain have had problems before a major tournament. Days before the 2018 World Cup, Spain coach Julen Lopetegui was fired after taking a job with Real Madrid, and goalkeeper David de Gea was involved in an investigation into a Spanish pornographic filmmaker ahead of Euro 2016. He was eventually completely cleared of anything. sin.
Luis Enrique hopes that the challenges posed by the coronavirus are in the past.
“I hope there will be no more cases (coronavirus) for any team,” Luis Enrique said. “I hope we can see a good scene. The fans want to get back on the pitch and get some normalcy back.”
