Mateusz Klich starts for Poland in Euros crunch time but Leeds United team mate Diego Llorente missing for Spain

MATEUSZ Klich starts for Poland against Sweden but Diego Llorente is not involved for Spain against Slovakia as Group E of the Euros reaches a conclusion tonight.

Wednesday, 23rd June 2021, 4:12 pm

Leeds United midfielder Klich has started both of Poland s first two group games which have yielded a solitary point through a 1-1 draw against Spain following a 2-1 defeat against Slovakia.

Poland are bottom of the group and must beat this evening's opponents Sweden in Saint Petersburg to stand any chance of progressing (kick-off 5pm)

Klich again starts whilst former Whites defender Pontus Jansson is on the bench for Sweden who are currently top of the group on four points.

But Klich's Whites team mate Llorente is not involved for Spain who have only bagged two points from their opening two fixtures and take on second-placed Slovakia in Seville (5pm).

Only a victory would guarantee Spain a place in the last 16.

Whites centre back Llorente has been an unused substitute in Spain's first two games but the defender is not named on the bench against Slovakia.

Slovakia have three points from their two games played so far.
