Sergio Busquets, midfielder and captain of the Spain national team, will not be the only La Roja player to be infected with the new Corona virus.

And the British “Sky Sports” network reported that the Spanish national team discovered the second infection in its ranks with the Corona virus, and here is the talk about Diego Llorente.

Thus, there are two cases of Corona virus in the ranks of “La Roja” 48 hours before the start of the European Nations Cup “Euro 2020”, knowing that the Spanish team will start its matches next Monday against Sweden, in Group E.

In turn, Luis Rubiales, president of the Spanish Football Federation, expected the worst to happen with regard to the increase in cases of corona among the national team.

Rubiales said in a press statement: “It is likely that more cases of corona will appear in the Spain squad, after the result of the examination of captain Sergio Busquets was positive.

” The team and the technical staff went into isolation immediately after Busquets’ injury was confirmed on Sunday, and the under-21 team participated in a friendly match against Lithuania on Tuesday and won 4-0.

Following the positive result of Busquets’ examination, the Spanish national team called up 6 additional players, goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, Raul Albiol, Carlos Soler, Brice Mendes, Pablo Fornals and Rodrigo Moreno, in order to form a parallel training bubble so that they can be included in the list of the upcoming Euro 2020 championship if the need arises.

In addition, the Spanish Federation said that an undetermined number of the under-21 players who participated in the match against Lithuania will be required to remain in “Madrid” to join the parallel bubble.

It should be noted that Sweden, which will face Spain on Tuesday, recorded two positive cases of Corona as well
