Busquets returns for Poland game after negative Covid test

Fri 18 June 2021 | 11:00

La Roja's captain will be ready for the team's second match at Euro 2020.


midfielder Sergio Busquets returned to the squad for the match against Poland after his COVID-19 test was negative.

The Barcelona midfielder could not accompany his teammates for their first match at Euro 2020 after his COVID-19 test was positive on June 7. As a result, Spain took their first step in the competition against Sweden and were stopped with a 0-0 draw.

Luis Enrique had chosen a second team in parallel with the main team to use other team members to participate in Euro 2020 if any of the main team's players tested positive for COVID-19. However, except for Busquets, only Diego Llorente tested positive, which was later found to be false positive.

On Friday, the Spanish Football Federation announced that Busquets' new COVID-19 test had also been negative and that he would travel to Seville with his teammates for Saturday's match against Poland.

Spain and Poland have met ten times so far, ending eight games with Spain winning, and Poland only defeated La Roja in a friendly in November 1980 in Barcelona.
