UEFA Euro 2020 Highlights, Scotland vs Czech Republic, Poland vs Slovakia and Spain vs Sweden: Spain dominated their opening Euro 2020 Group E game against Sweden but could only come away with a 0-0 draw after Janne Andersson’s side showed little ambition in going forward. The Spaniards outclassed Sweden in possession and Alvaro Morata fired a great chance just wide, but it was the Swedes that came closest to scoring as Alexander Isak’s shot was deflected onto a post by Marcos Llorente just before halftime. The second half had even less in the way of creative attacking football as the Swedes did their best to run the clock down while making the occasional break, and Spain could not find a way through the massed yellow ranks of defenders.

Kick-Off! Spain and Sweden get us underway in Seville! 

Jun 15, 2021 00:21 (IST)

Teenage midfielder Pedri was a surprise inclusion in Spain's starting team for their Euro 2020 Group E opener against Sweden as coach Luis Enrique opted for the flair of the Barcelona playmaker over the experience of Thiago Alcantara and Fabian Ruiz.

The coach stayed loyal to Alvaro Morata in attack, the centre forward keeping his place in the side despite being booed by home supporters in the last warm-up friendly against Portugal.

Sweden coach Janne Andersson's main dilemma was picking a strike partner for the experienced Marcus Berg and he went for Alexander Isak over Robin Quaison, banking on the striker's prolific form for Real Sociedad last season.

Red Card! Grzegorz Krychowiak is shown the first yellow card of Euro 2020!

UEFA Euro 2020 Highlights: Scotland 0-2 Czech Republic, Poland 1-2 Slovakia and Spain 0-0 Sweden
UEFA Euro 2020: Spain vs Sweden (AP)

Milan Skriniar’s second-half goal earned Slovakia a 2-1 win over 10-man Poland in their opening Euro 2020 Group E match.

Skriniar beat Wojciech Szczesny with a low drive in the 69th minute, capitalising on the sending-off of Polish midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak following a second booking for a challenge on Jakub Hromada.

Poland’s woes began in the 18th minute when a strike by Robert Mak bounced off Szczesny’s near post and slipped into the net after hitting the goalkeeper. The Poles equalised seconds after halftime through Karol Linetty, a surprise starter in Paulo Sousa’s team.

Scotland vs Czech Republic

Patrik Schick gave the Czech Republic the lead in the 42nd-minute and then doubled it in the 52nd with a stunning strike as they beat Scotland 2-0, who are playing their first major international tournament after 23 years at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

Patrik Schick scored twice, including an extraordinary 45-metre effort from just inside the halfway line, to give the Czech Republic a 2-0 win over Scotland in their European Championship opener at Hampden Park on Monday.

Schick put the Czechs in front three minutes before half-time as he towered above two defenders to power home a header, but his second goal seven minutes into the second half will almost certainly be one of the tournament’s greatest.

A blocked effort in midfield saw the ball fall to Schick, who spotted Scotland goalkeeper David Marshall off his line and fire an audacious long-range left-footed lob that curled through the air with unerring accuracy to thunder into an empty net.
