Enrique refuses to specify the goalkeeper of the Spanish national team against Sweden
Spain coach Luis Enrique refused to specify the goalkeeper who will guard the team's den when the team opens its matches in the European Football Championship "Euro 2020" against Sweden on Monday in Seville, and warned against underestimating the opposing team.
"He will be one of three: David de Gea, Unai Simon, Robert Sanchez," said Enrique, 51, when asked who would guard the Spanish national team's den.
De Gea, who has played 45 caps, appears to be the logical choice even though he lost his place as a starting goalkeeper at Manchester United.
Luis Enrique called up goalkeeper Simon, who has played seven international matches.
Enrique highlighted the "quality of performance" of Sweden's Emil Forsberg, Leipzig's striker, but the two teams know everything about each other as they met in qualifying for the tournament.
"The Swedish team is very direct," Enrique said.
Enrique added that his team trained in the hottest time of the day at camp in Madrid to prepare for the high temperatures in Seville.
The Spanish national team is missing its captain, Sergio Busquets, due to his infection with the Corona virus, but Diego Llorente returned to the team after spending a period of isolation after a false positive result of an examination he underwent to detect infection with the Corona virus.
