Spain are looking for a repeat of their 2008 and 2012 performances at Euro 2020. Spain won three consecutive international tournaments including the World Cup in 2010. During the last Euros, they barely made it past the group stage before losing to Turkey in the first knockout round.
Goalkeeper: David de Gea
David de Gea has not been in the best of form for a couple of seasons but has hold of the Number 1 jersey for Spain. None of Spain’s three keepers have been in the best of form last season. Spain will be hoping the de Gea of old returns this Euro 2020.
Defense: Aymeric Laporte
After having Sergio Ramos ruled out for the Euros, there will be a lot of expectations on Aymeric Laporte. He has been ignored by France down the years despite putting up world-class performances at the club level over the years. Laporte is deemed eligible to play for Spain since his great-grandparents hailed from the Basque region.
Manchester City midfielder Rodri is fresh from winning the Premier League. The holding midfielder has slowly but surely taken up the role held down by Sergio Busquets for the past decade or so. Rodri possesses a wide passing range and his positional play helps him with the interceptions.
Attack: Ferran Torres
The nature of Luis Enrique’s side means selecting a key man up top is difficult but as much as it could be Alvaro Morata leading the line, it’s Ferran Torres who has been doing the damage recently. The youngster bagged a hat-trick against Germany in November and his production for Man City.
