Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa added to Spain’s standby list for Euros

Luis Enrique’s side fear more players could test positive and, as a result, they have players on standby training separately.

Kepa will land in Madrid on Tuesday afternoon and join training on Wednesday as Spain prepare to kick of their Euro 2020 campaign against Sweden in Group E on Monday.

Spain had been due to play Lithuania in a friendly on Tuesday, but they had to pull out after Busquets’ positive test.

The country’s Under-21 side will play the game instead.
