La Roja were vaccinated this morning at Las Rozas by the Armed Forces according to a statement from the Spanish Football Federation. The players of the Spanish national team either received or completed their vaccination against covid-19, depending on their personal situation and whether they’ve received a dose yet or not.

A dozen health professionals, supported by a dozen uniformed officers, travelled to Las Rozas to administer the doses. The vaccination was fast-tracked in collaboration between the Spanish Football Federation and the Ministry for Health after Sergio Busquets and Diego Llorente, two first-teamers, returned positive PCR tests this week, throwing La Roja’s preparations for Euro 2020 into chaos.
Spain drew 0-0 with Portugal in a friendly at the Wanda Metropolitano last weekend, and were supposed to play Lithuania at Butarque in their final warm-up game only for Busquets’ positive to throw a spanner in the works. An U21 team was fielded instead, and managed to win 4-0. La Roja open their Euro 2020 campaign this Monday evening down in Seville, against Sweden at La Cartuja.
