The Spanish under-21 team has not been able to travel to Slovenia on Wednesday to play the final phase of the European Championship after detecting a positive for Covid-19 in the expedition. The team remains at Las Rozas Football City and is waiting for new PCR tests to be carried out on all the members before looking for a new date for the flight.
The internationals and the rest of the expedition underwent the tests determined by the sanitary protocol of the RFEF and the UEFA. Late yesterday, the incidence in one of those controls was notified through the medical services and, at that moment, the protocol planned for these cases was implemented.
The repetition of the PCR tests to rule out new infections among the members of the expedition, delay the trip until determining that there are no more positives, the preventive isolation of the closest contacts of the positive and the expansion and intensification of security measures, such as extension of the distance, training by group, are some of the measures that have been implemented from the RFEF.
The tests carried out on Wednesday morning have yielded negative results for new infections.
Spain plays next Monday, May 31, its quarter-final match against Croatia. To overcome that meeting, he would play the semifinals on Thursday, June 3. The final is scheduled for Sunday, June 6.
