Sergio Busquets rejoins Spain’s Euro squad after battling COVID-19

The team informed on Friday that Spain captain Sergio Busquets has recovered from COVID-19 and is to return the squad immediately, in a boost to their Euro 2020 campaign after making a lacklustre start. He defeated the virus on 6th June while preparing for the tournaments at Spain’s training camp in Madrid and was sent back home to Barcelona into quarantine, though, he was able to continue training on an individual basis as he was asymptomatic.

The team stated on their official website that Sergio will return to the team’s camp after returning a negative test and will fly with the rest of the squad to Seville ahead of Saturday’s game against Poland. He is the only serving member of Spain’s 2010 World Cup-winning side still in the squad and was named skipper after Sergio Ramos was left out of the squad due to injury.

The Barcelona star, Sergio was however unlikely to face Poland after being tested positive and was unable to train with the group. Spain will be targeting to kick-start their campaign against Poland after a frustrating goalless draw with Sweden in their first game in Group E. Busquets was replaced by Rodri Hernandez in the opener against Sweden, and Jordi Alba took over as team captain in his absence. Now, Spain will travel from its base in Madrid to Seville on Friday.
