Spain vs Poland: Euro 2020 – LIVE!

Spain and Poland are both looking to get up and running at the tournament after frustrating opening games.

Luis Enrique’s side dominated the game against Sweden but were held to a 0-0 draw, while Poland lost to Slovakia 2-1 as star striker Robert Lewandowski was stifled.

Alvaro Morata came under fire following the game, but Enrique will continue with the striker, telling reporters: “We start with Morata and 10 more.”

Poland’s path to victory will likely have to go through Lewandowski, who hasn’t fared well with his national team at major tournaments despite undisputed success throughout his career at club level with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

Sweden currently lead Group E after beating Slovakia on Friday, but Spain can overleap from with a convincing win this evening. Another defeat for Poland will all but confirm their tournament over.

So, Alvaro Morata will be starting again tonight. Luis Enrique’s other choices in attack include Dani Olmo and Ferran Torres, who started alongside Morata against Sweden, and Gerard Moreno, Mikel Oyarzabal, Adama Traore and Pablo Sarabia.

Spain got some good news on Friday with the return of captain Sergio Busquets, who rejoined the squad after a period of isolation following a positive test result for the coronavirus.

Luis Enrique said Busquets showed no symptoms of the virus while in isolation and was able to practice at home.

He said the veteran midfielder, the only player left from Spain’s World Cup-winning squad in 2010, is in condition to play on Saturday.
