Spain players vaccinated

The Spain squad were vaccinated against Covid-19 on Friday, the Spanish football federation confirmed, on the first day of Euro 2020 and three days before the team's opening game.

Spain start against Sweden in Group E on Monday night and it is possible some players will now feel the side-effects of the vaccination ahead of the fixture in Seville.

All the players also underwent PCR tests on Friday morning, the results all coming back negative for a third consecutive day.

The vaccinations were carried out by the Spanish army, who arrived at the national team's training base in Las Rozas, in the north-west of Madrid, after the government finally gave its approval.

"The players summoned for Euro 2020 have received or completed their vaccination against Covid-19 on Friday," a statement from the federation said.
