Also, Swedes and Slovakia with their ‘Never Give Up’ attitude to tune the entertainment. Let us see how this group is up for the task to get to the Top 2 of Group E.

Team Involved in Group E


Looking at this team, I don’t have any reason to deny the fact that they are the contenders of the Top 2. Though many big names like Sergio Ramos, Parejo, Canales are missing, it is a very reliable squad. Luis Enrique hopefully believes youngsters will make an impact, with just 24 selected out of 26 allowed. Some famous young guns are seen amongst members namely Ferran Torres, Aymeric Laporte, David De Gea, Cesar Azpilecueta, and many more on the Spanish sheet.

Group E Spain

Players to watch out for

  • Ferran Torres

Impressing everyone in the league stages, this young lad is going out on Europe’s biggest of stages to make an impact. His decisive touches and finishing might be the factor that he is in our A list.

This playmaker from Atletico De Madrid will be the showman for Spaniards on these big occasions. His runs and his passes might be the points that no one can deny of him being around the pitch the whole time.


The most interesting team and the most probable qualifier for the Round of 16 spots are the men from Poland. This team has an attacking approach whenever they get possession and charge to their target with ease. After a disastrous 2018 WC, they might look out for their dominant phase somewhere in this tournament. Their main man in the business, Robert Lewandowski is going to be their key to success. On the defense half, they have an arsenal in their hand named Wojciech Szczesny, his keeping is known worldwide. Kamil Piatkowski will be their guy on the first line of defense. Also, some big names like Milik, Piatek, and Zielinski are the ones to count on.

The Swedes have proved a lot in recent years under their captain Grandquist and some main names for the squad that have helped out. The absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic might hurt as he was going to return to International football after his retirement. Youngsters have cherished them up at times, Isak is one of the names that come up forward. Defense is strong with Grandquist joined by Victor Lindelof and his commanding aura.

Group E Sweden

This midfielder is a veteran for Sweden across all competitions and might want to give his experience expertise to everyone on the squad and might clear their road for the knockout stages.


Underdogs of this group but not to be underestimated. Slovaks might prove a threat with their stronger intent. Skriniar is the name that comes up when there is are talks about defense issues. The veteran Marek Hamsik might be the man who could properly advise the squad to not repeat the mistakes committed by them.
