Six months ago, Spain smashed Germany by a 6-0 score, so ruling them out of contention this summer would be absurd. Andres Iniesta, Xavi Hernandez, and David Villa were part of the golden generation. However, this doesn’t look like an old Spain team. With the nearing of UEFA Euro 2020, we have noted a preview of Spain in Group E of the European Championship.
Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos will not feature in this summer’s tournament. His absence from Spain’s 26 player squad is a surprise for everyone. Luis Enrique claimed that Ramos was unable to be called up due to injuries.
Spain still has enough skill to compete at the highest level despite the generational shift. There are no duds in the squad, despite the fact that they lack the great names of countries like France and England. When you consider that they will play their three group games in Seville, they appear to be a decent bet to advance far in the campaign.
As 16 teams out of 24 qualify, Spain will have no trouble moving out of their group. La Roja is the favorite to win all three games with a modest home audience in Sevilla, and it suggests that Sweden or Slovakia will pose challenges.
In the last 16 they ensure themselves a spot as the third-best team by winning their group, they could also have a chance to advance to the quarter-finals. Much will depend on how well their backline gels and whether Torres, Moreno, Olmo, Alvaro Morata, and Mikel Oyarzabal fire in attack if they reach the last eight.
