Spain forced to call up more players due to COVID

Due to a COVID-19 fear ahead of Euro 2020, Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is the latest player to join Spain's distinct squad bubble.

Sergio Busquets has already tested positive, and despite the fact that no one else from the 24-man squad has, contingency preparations are now being implemented.

Due to health concerns, Spain has created a parallel bubble with players who may be called into the senior team for the event.

And now, together with Rodrigo, Pablo Fornals, Carlos Soler, Brais Méndez, and Ral Albiol, Kepa has joined a group that will train away from the main unit in the coming days, ready to be called in if needed.

If he passes the appropriate tests, the 26-year-old will travel in Madrid on Tuesday afternoon and practice with the aforementioned five on Wednesday.
