Spain are aiming to reach their seventh consecutive Euro with the hope the current crop of players is good enough to win a third European title in four years.
No doubt La Roja are favorite to qualify from their group as a winner, and they will also start as tournament favorites as well. But the 2010 world champions have gone through a lot of changes in recent times, especially the players from the golden generation, the likes of Xavi, Iniesta, Casillas, Fabregas and Gerard Pique, have either hanged up their boots entirely or have taken international retirement.
There’s no denying the fact that Spain have been poor in recent years. They have been so for quite some time now. Their fading power definitely coincides with the retirement of star players.
However, even then, La Roja were not expected to exit the World Cup at the group stage in Russia. The rot seemed to continue even after that as England pipped them in the UEFA Nations League.
It’s all about rebuilding now for manager Luis Enrique. He has flirted with the squad of late, which suggests that the former Barcelona manager is still trying to find his best 11.
Norway, meanwhile, haven’t made to the European Championship since 2000. But that was also the only time in their history, so the achievement was quite incredible to say the least. But for a team which has so many talented players on their roster, it certainly feels an underachievement.
The visitors have a remarkable UEFA Nations League campaign as they topped their group in League C. As a result, Lars Lagerbäck’s men successful managed to qualify for League B.
However, it’s still a tough ask for Norway to qualify from their group. Spain are an outright favorite to win the group, while Sweden are expected to round off the 2nd place.
