GOOD AFTERNOON FROM SEVILLE
Welcome to our live coverage of the Euro 2020 group stage match between Spain and Slovakia at the Estadio La Cartuja.
It’s go time for both teams with their fates set to be decided on a very open Group E that either one could end up topping or finishing at the bottom of the pile.
Of course, much is also going to depend on the other big game of the group between Sweden and Poland, who face off at the same time at the Gazprom Arena in Saint Petersburg.
Spain have been enduring a very disappointing start in their campaign, that could even lead to an abrupt ending unless they finally win today.
Furia Roja manager Luis Enrique has received a major boost as Barcelona legend Sergio Busquets has returned to full training and will be available for selection following his recent bout with coronavirus.
Therefore, he could earn a place in the starting line-up next to Barca team-mate Pedri ahead of Manchester City star Rodri, who was booked against Poland last week.
Slovakia manager Stefan Tarkovic, on the other hand, is going to be without Lazio loanee Denis Vavro, who is still self-isolating after testing positive for COVID-19.
The Slovaks are also going to be without Slavia Prague forward Ivan Schranz as he is still dealing with a thigh injury
