Euro 2020: Spain Begin Quest For Fourth Title, Tackle Sweden In Seville

Euro 2020: Spain Begin Quest For Fourth Title,  Tackle Sweden In Seville

Spain will begin their quest for a fourth European title when they take on Sweden in Seville on Monday night.

La Roja have won the European Championship three times and a fourth title would make them the most successful side in the history of the competition.

They won the competition in 1964, 2008 and 2012.

Spain’s preparation for the competition has been far from ideal with captain Sergio Busquets and Diego Llorente testing positives for Covid-19.

Sweden on the other hand will be attempting to make it out of the group stages for the first time since Euro 2004, when they progressed to the quarter-finals.

The Swedes have now been present in each of the last six tournaments, but they have been eliminated in the group stage in three successive competitions and will be determined to go further this year.

Janne Andersson’s side enter the competition full of confidence, though, having won each of their last five matches, including back-to-back friendly victories over Finland and Armenia on May 29 and June 5 respectively.
