Spain began their Euro 2020 challenge with a disappointing scoreless draw against Sweden.
Although the home side dominated the game in Seville, they were wasteful in front of goal, with Dani Olmo and Alvaro Morata particularly culpable of squandering good situations.
A match to forget for the Atletico Madrid striker, who was wasteful in front of goal. Got into several good positions but contrived to miss a finishing touch. In the first half, should have pounced on a rare slip from Marcus Danielson but fired wide without testing Robin Olsen.
The Real Sociedad striker was the player who posed Spain most problems. While he was not exactly regularly active, when he was involved, he was typically dangerous. A break down the right channel in the first half resulted in Marcos Llorente clearing against his own post, while in the second half he squared for Marcus Berg after a forceful run only for the veteran to miss from five yards out. Close to being decisive.
Ran the show for Spain in the heart of the field but was another player guilty of missing a presentable chance in the opening half when he failed to keep a cutback down. Nevertheless, his raids forward were purposeful and at least promised to make a breakthrough for his side.
