Euro 2020: Daily briefing

Follow all the action as Spain take on Poland in Euro 2020’s Group E tonight.

Luis Enrique’s side endured a frustrating opening draw against Sweden, despite dominating the contest, with Alvaro Morata’s wayward finishing costing La Roja. Turning possession into points has become a familiar problem for Spain, however, Enrique bullishly defended Morata in the week, insisting he is one of the world’s very best strikers. “He’s doing well,” Enrique said. “His body language is very good and I think he’s doing perfectly. We teach Alvaro things every week, and he’s been working with a smile and the right attitude. We have the utmost confidence in Morata.”

Spain cannot afford to let any further points slip, though, in a surprisingly tight group. Sweden moved top of Group E on four points with a 1-0 victory over Slovakia yesterday. However, Slovakia remain on three points after stunning Poland in the opening round. Poland, who know they must take something from this game to maintain any hope of reaching the last 16, will provide stern opposition to Spain, although they must get more out of their talisman, Robert Lewandowski, who has scored just two goals in his last 12 tournament appearances for the national team.

Euro 2020: Portugal 2 – 4 Germany

It was a bit of a shocker for Portugal tonight. They are the first reigning champions in European Championship history to concede four goals in a single match in the competition.

It’s only the second time that Portugal have conceded four goals in a single game during major tournament – both came against Germany who also humbled them at the 2014 World Cup.

Euro 2020: CHANCE! Goretzka fires high and wide

84 mins: Germany have the chance to end the game as they break on the counter-attack. Goretzka leads it by bringing the ball through midfield with Gnabry in front of him. The Portugal defenders drop off and drop off so Goretzka decides to go it alone. He squeezes into the box and lets fly only for his effort to sail over the goal.

78 mins: The visitors wins a corner that Joao Moutinho plays short to the edge of the box. Renato Sanches runs onto the ball and blasts it at goal. It’s a thunderbolt of a strike that flies through everyone and rattles into the near post before bouncing away. That would have been some goal.
