Spain’s players to be vaccinated ahead of Euro 2020 opener after Sergio Busquets and Diego Llorente’s positive Covid tests
Spain’s squad will be vaccinated by the army ahead of their Euro 2020 opener with Sweden after Sergio Busquets and Diego Llorente tested positive for Covid-19.
Luis Enrique’s side were forced to go into isolation after Sergio Busquets and Diego Llorente tested positive for COVID-19.
Spain were forced to field an U21 side in their friendly against Lithuania, which they won 4-0. But the country’s Ministry of Health has now approved proposals to give the first-team stars vaccinations.
According to ESPN, the decision came after pressure from the Spanish football federation.
They had reportedly been asking for players to be vaccinated for the last two months with the country’s Olympic athletes having already received it.
The squad have remained in quarantine with players training separately at their base in Madrid.
