Rodrigo helps Spain book Euro 2020 spot

Spain sealed their spot in the UEFA Euro 2020 as a stoppage-time strike by substitute Rodrigo cancelled out Marcus Berg’s opener for Sweden in a 1-1 draw in Group F this morning.

Having been held by both Norway and Sweden in their last two outings, Spain will be well aware that there is plenty of work to be done if they want to be considered among the favourites at next year’s tournament.

Berg gave Sweden the lead early in the second half after his initial header was saved, as was Emil Forsberg’s shot, but Berg nodded home from close range at the second attempt to put his side ahead.

The crowd of over 49,000 in the stands appeared to be in a buoyant mood with the final whistle fast approaching, but Rodrigo had other plans as he snapped up the ball form a corner and rifled it home to send Spain through in the 92nd minute.
