With Craig Pawson an Englishman takes over the leadership of this test match. His compatriots Ian Hussin and Daniel Cook assist the 42-year-old on the sidelines.
Fernando Santos also changes cheerfully in his starting eleven. Only the offensive row of three around Diogo Jota, João Félix and Cristiano Ronaldo as well as José Fonte and Renato Sanches begin as they did in Luxembourg. In addition, Raphaël Guerreiro starts from Borussia Dortmund. Streicher André Silva from Eintracht Frankfurt is initially watching.
Today, of course, the first test before the European Championship is due. The constellations on both sides are designed accordingly. Spain coach Luis Enrique brings many changes compared to the last game, including the former Munich Thiago. Dani Olmo from RB Leipzig is sitting on the bench for the time being.
Most recently, the Iberian selections competed in World Cup qualification. Against Kosovo, Spain won 3: 1 despite a weak exploitation of chances. Portugal also won 3-1 when they received Luxembourg at the end of March. As a result, both nations lead their respective groups.
From a sporting point of view, the Spanish Selección and the Portuguese Seleções are in excellent shape. For 22 games, Spain has been waiting for a defeat in a series that also includes the outstanding 6-1 against Germany. Even for the Portuguese, defeats are few and far between. They lost only once in the last 13 games.
Many exciting factors play a role in this friendly game. In addition to the long history and rivalry both outside and on the field, the winners of the last three European championships will meet shortly before the EM 2021. In addition, both nations are celebrating their joint application to host the 2030 World Cup.
100 years after the first meeting, the Spanish national team welcomes their Iberian neighbor from Portugal. Welcome!
