The preparation of the Spanish team for the European Championships has been confused. Sergio Busquets has made a positive corontest, announces the Spanish Union.
Where Jasper Cillessen had to miss the European Championships through a positive test, but Busquets can still hope for EC participation. However, the FC Barcelona inspector will be in isolation for the time being, as will his ‘closest contacts’ and the medical team accompanying him, and will train individually until further notice.
The infection of Busquets also affects the closing practice duel against Lithuania on Tuesday. The Spanish Union announces that it will send to Leganés the O21 selection — which was eliminated on Thursday evening by Portugal on the Youth European Championships — just to be sure. Spectators who already bought a ticket get their money back. If they still want to go to the game, they can get a 20% discount. Furthermore, all media obligations of the Spanish selection have been provisionally suspended.
Spain starts at the European Championships on Monday 14 June. The 2012 European Champion is in the pool with Sweden, Poland and Slovakia.
