Busquets tests negative for COVID-19, joins Spain squad

Explained: What Sergio Busquets' positive COVID-19 test means for Spain –  The Athletic

Sergio Busquets has tested negative in the PCR test he took and is en route to Las Rozas today to join up with La Roja before they head to Seville this afternoon according to Diario AS. He won’t face Poland tomorrow, but he’s expected to be ready for Spain’s third match at Euro 2020 next Wednesday, against Slovakia.

The Barcelona midfielder had tested positive the weekend before Euro 2020 got underway, throwing Luis Enrique’s plans for the opener against Sweden into chaos. They drew that game 0-0 at La Cartuja, dominating proceedings but failing to carve open their visitors, who sat deep with a strict 4-4-2 shape. To improve this, Luis Enrique is said to be considering making a change at full-back, midfield and forward

Luis Enrique could bring in Gerard Moreno, but not in place of the much-maligned Alvaro Morata. The pair could form a double-pronged attacking two, with Ferran Torres making way. Aymeric Laporte and Pau Torres look set to continue at centre-back, but Jose Luis Gaya could come in for Jordi Alba.
