Luis Enrique makes sweeping Spain changes for Sweden showdown

Spain boss Luis Enrique has opted to make six changes to his starting line up for their crunch 2022 World Cup qualifier against Sweden.

La Roja head into their final qualifier needing just a single point at the Estadio de La Cartuja in Sevilla to finish on top of Group B, ahead of the Swedes.

Spain’s midweek win over Greece has put them in pole position for a place at Qatar in 2022 but Enrique insisted they will not be playing for a draw tonight.
