Despite their complicated Euro debut, Spain has good reason to believe in their chances of winning the Euro.
Spain can’t do it. Forced to a draw by Sweden in the opening (0-0), La Roja has indeed followed with a second sharing of points on Saturday against Poland (1-1). Enough for Luis Enrique’s men to point to third place in their group.
Spain, however, has a reason to believe in its coronation on July 11: the goal of Robert Lewandowski cashed shortly before the hour of play.
The Bayern Munich striker is indeed only the second player in history to score in three consecutive Euros, joining Cristiano Ronaldo in the books of history. In 2012, the Polish striker had already scored against Spain, before La Roja was crowned. And in 2016, it was against Portugal that he struck, the Seleçao winning the Euro a few weeks later. Spain are hoping for a pass of three.
