    On June 11, the sixteenth UEFA championship kicked off in Rome. The championship was supposed to take place last year, but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    The Spanish national football team drew with Sweden on Monday in the match of the 1st round group stage of the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship.

    The game, held in in Seville, Spain, ended with a score 0:0 amid difficulties that the teams faced due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    Swedish footballer Kristoffer Olsson was replaced in the 84th minute, due to an injury, and Swede Viktor Claesson joined the game in the 69th, but football fans saw no goals.

    Both teams have gained one point in standings. Spain is currently ranked second in Group E, with the Swedes one rung below. Slovakia currently holds first place in the group.

    In the next round, Spain will play Poland. The game will take place on 19 June in Seville. Sweden is to meet with Slovakia in St. Petersburg the day prior.

    The two teams have not started the tournament with their best lineup, as some players tested positive for COVID-19, including the Spanish captain, Sergio Busquets, and Swedish midfielders Dejan Kulusevski and Mattias Svanberg.
