Spain and Portugal go in a friendly match, which will be a preparation for the upcoming Euro 2020 football competition this summer. Both teams are some of the strongest in Europe in recent years, so the match should offer high-level football. Luis Enrique, who took over the Spanish national football team, is entering a new era and is increasingly relying on young hopes at the expense of famous names.
In this match, probably both teams will experiment and look for the right path for the most suitable first team. Spain is one of the strongest teams in Europe. They won Euro 2008, 2012, and also the World Cup in 2010. The team also started the World Cup qualifiers well in 2022, recording 7 points from 3 games so far. In 2016, surprisingly, Spain was eliminated in 16 finals, but still against them was the team of Italy and yet in 2 of the last 3 European Championships, they won first place, so that Spain will be one of the favorites for Euro 2020 in Portugal. Another friendly match is coming up, after the one with Portugal, and on June 8 they will face Lithuania, and then Sweden in the first match of the group stage of the European Championship.
Portugal is the last champion of the European Football Championship. This happened in 2016, where France was eliminated in the final. Prior to that, in 2021, the team was eliminated in the semifinals with Spain, where they lost in penalties. The strong performance of Portugal and also one of the favorites in this tournament. The team fell into one of the most difficult groups along with France and Germany, so they will try to get the most out of their training and friendly matches before the match with Hungary, which will be on June 15 this year.
