Spain under-21 record impressive win over Lithuania in last friendly ahead of Euro 2020

Luis Enrique saw his confidence in his under-21 players get rewarded as the youngsters claimed a comfortable 4-0 win against Lithuania in their final friendly before Euro 2020.

No senior players featured after captain Sergio Busquets had tested positive for Covid-19 on Sunday.

Despite their absence, the youthful Spanish held their ground as they led 2-0 at half-time, thanks to goals from Hugo Guillamon and Brahim Diaz.

Juan Miranda made it 3-0 after the break before Javi Puado got a fourth late on.

It was also the youngest-ever side fielded in their history, with an average age of 22 years and 102 days.

Yeah, the result will serve as a good morale booster for Enrique’s men, who begin their Group E campaign against Sweden in Seville on Monday, June 14, before playing Poland on Wednesday and Slovakia on Saturday, as they hope to make a statement in the tournament.
