Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Spain face a tough test against Slovakia in their final Group E game in Seville on Wednesday. Poland take on Sweden in Saint Petersburg on the same day where they will battle for a place in the knockout stages.
Spain and Poland play out a 1-1 draw in their Euro 2020 Group E contest. Robert Lewandowski cancelled out Alvaro Morata's first-half strike in a result that keeps Paulo Sousa's men alive in the competition, heading into the final round of fixtures. La Roja are held for the second game in a row and still have work ahead of them to ensure they can qualify for a place in the last 16 after a missed penalty from Gerard Moreno loomed large.
Yellow Card
90' + 4' Rodri trips Kozlowski with a cynical challenge and goes into the book.
90' + 4' Ruiz sends a long ball to the left flank for Alba, who steers a cross into the box. Linetty is the first man on the scene and he clears the danger.
R. Lewandowski
Yellow Card
90' + 3' Lewandowski catches Laporte with an outstretched leg and brings down the Spain defender. The Poland skipper is booked for his challenge.
90' + 2' Poland are doing a fine job of taking the sting out of the game. They're closing in on a vital result to keep their last-16 hopes alive.
90' There will be five minutes of added time.
90' Kozlowski has space to run into in the Spain half, but he just takes a loose touch and sees his attempted offload to Lewandowski blocked.
88' Spain need to inject tempo into the game in the closing stages. Unfortunately for them, their opponents are doing everything in their power to slow down proceedings.
Mikel Oyarzabal
Álvaro Morata
87' Oyarzabal replaces Morata in the final third for the closing stages. It has been an eventful night for Morata, who scored Spain's goal, but also missed a couple of chances.
K. Linetty
J. Moder
85' Moder is replaced in the closing stages of the contest and is replaced by Linetty in the middle of the park.
P. Dawidowicz
J. Bednarek
85' Bednarek has suffered a knock and has to be withdrawn for the closing stages. Dawidowicz replaces the Southampton man.
83' SAVE AND OVER! Spain are denied by Szczesny. Alba flicks a ball into the box and Sarabia cushions it into the path of Morata. The keeper spreads himself and denies the Spain forward. Ferran Torres pounces on the rebound, but he clips his effort over the bar.
Pau Torres
Yellow Card
81' Pau Torres catches Lewandowski with a stray arm and goes into the book.
80' PRESSURE! Morata tries to twist in the six-yard box, but Bednarek stops the forward completing his attempt. Rodri goes for a strike on the follow-up, only to drill his strike at Szczesny, who makes a solid stop.
79' Szczesny almost has another moment to forget in the Euros. The Poland keeper has to come off his line to ease the pressure on Bereszynski, who ushers a low pass from Ruiz towards his keeper. Szczesny almost spills the ball, but just manages to hold on amid the presence of Ferran Torres.
78' Spain's dominance of possession may be crucial in the closing stages. Poland's midfield and defence have done a lot of chasing over the course of the game. Tired minds and legs will be a factor.
77' Lewandowski feeds Frankowski down the right flank, but the latter just takes a second too long to send a return ball in across the face of goal. Torres gets the block and it deflects back off the Poland winger to win Spain a goal-kick.
75' Spain are recycling possession, but are not making a great deal of headway in the final third. It's almost a carbon-copy of their frustrating contest against Sweden.
73' CHANCE! Ferran Torres has a free header at goal as he latches on to Llorente's cross, but can only steer his attempt wide of the target.
71' Sarabia wins a free-kick on the right flank for a foul by Glik. Szczesny commits himself once again, but on this occasion he clears with a punch away from danger.
69' Szczesny takes a huge risk at the back by coming off his line to punch away a corner. He misses his punch completely, but a handball by Laporte lets him off the hook.
Pablo Sarabia
68' Sarabia replaces Koke, although he will be deployed in an attacking role.
Fabián Ruiz
Gerard Moreno
68' Gerard makes way after missing the penalty. Ruiz comes on to replace the forward in the final third.
P. Frankowski
K. Świderski
68' Swiderski struck the post in the first half, but has faded in the second period. Frankowski enters the action to replace him.
66' Spain have issued a strong reaction since the Poland equaliser, despite the penalty miss. It's all about composure from both teams.
65' SAVE! Morata makes a good run into the right-inside channel to latch on to Gerard's pass. He strikes an effort across the face of goal that Szczesny has to turn past the left post.
63' Lewandowski is the first Poland player to score in three different editions of the European Championships (2020, 2016, 2012).
62' Kozlowski (17 years and 246 days) has become the youngest ever player to make an appearance at the European Championships, overtaking Jude Bellingham's record (17y 349d) set for England six days ago.
Ferran Torres
Dani Olmo
61' Enrique opts to withdraw Olmo from the action as Ferran Torres enters the field in the final third.
K. Jóźwiak
Yellow Card
59' Jozwiak brings down Pedri with a loose challenge and goes into the book. Poland react with fury, but it was not a good tackle. Sousa has to get his team to calm down.
Gerard Moreno
Penalty Miss
58' MISS!!!! Moreno fails to hold his composure from the spot. He strikes a low effort at goal, but his strike hits the left post before Morata pokes the rebound wide of the target. A huge moment in the contest.
J. Moder
Yellow Card
57' Moder is booked for his challenge on Gerard that leads the to the penalty.
57' VAR! PENALTY TO SPAIN! VAR spots that Gerard is caught late by Moder as he clips the cross into the box. The referee is instructed to look at the monitor at the side of the pitch, and after reviewing the incident he awards the spot-kick.
K. Kozłowski
M. Klich
55' Kozłowski enters the action to replace Klich, becoming the youngest player to appear in the Euros.
55' Gerard leads a counter straight at Poland's backline. He clips a low cross into the six-yard that causes havoc for Sousa's men, but Bereszynski reacts to turn it away from Morata.
K. Jóźwiak
54' Jozwiak collects on the right flank and delivers a sublime cross for Lewandowski to attack and score.
R. Lewandowski
54' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!! LEWANDOWSKI HEADS HOME THE EQUALISER!!! 1-1!!!! Poland's talisman comes to their rescue with a powerful header into the bottom-left corner. The press from Sousa's men works and they win the ball in the middle of park. Jozwiak takes possession down the right flank and delivers a precise cross into the middle. Lewandowski outduels Laporte in the air and nods his effort past Simon.
50' Poland have come out for the second half, attempting to press La Roja higher up the pitch. It is a better signal of intent from Sousa's men.
48' Swiderski tries to find Klich in space with a throughball in the final third, but he just misplaces his offload by a fraction to spurn an opening.
47' Poland have never won a European Championship match after conceding first (D1 L4).
46' Poland have to take the initiative in the second half otherwise they will be eliminated from the tournament. Sousa needs a special effort from his team.
46' We're back under way in Seville.
Spain could have doubled their advantage before the break, but Gerard Moreno fired wide from close range. Luis Enrique will be satisfied with their performance, although he will recognise the threat of Poland, especially with Lewandowski lurking in the final third.
Spain lead Poland 1-0 at the break in their Euro 2020 Group E clash. Alvaro Morata put La Roja ahead in the 25th minute, steering Gerard Moreno's delivery into the back of the net. The goal was initially disallowed for offside, only to be overturned by VAR. Poland could have responded before the break, but Karol Swiderski struck the post before Robert Lewandowski was denied on the rebound. It is a tight game and it's all to play for in the second half.
45' There will be one minute of added time.
45' CHANCE! Gerard spurns a glorious opening before the break. Alba sends a dangerous cross towards the near post where Gerard steers a left-footed strike towards goal, but he can only place his attempt wide of the target.
43' OFF THE POST AND SAVED! Poland come inches away from an equaliser. Jozwiak robs Alba of possession and the ball finds Swiderski. He beats the challenge of Torres and curls a strike towards goal that rattles the left post. Lewandowski pounces on the rebound and hammers an effort towards the net, only to be denied by a great block from Simon.
41' Olmo has a probe down the left flank and tries to find Morata in the middle, but Bednarek is alive to threat and clears the danger.
39' Morata tries to win a free-kick on the edge of the box as he goes down under pressure from Bereszynski. He handles the ball in the process of falling and concedes a set-piece.
38' Spain are working the ball with ease around the pitch and are putting the Poland midfield to work. Sousa's men will be quite tired in the second half if they're forced to chase throughout the contest.
M. Klich
Yellow Card
36' Klich charges in late on Pedri and goes into the book.
35' OVER! Swiderski has to score! Lewandowski causes problems down the right flank, but cannot find room for a strike. Instead he lifts a cross to the near post for Swiderski to attack. However, the winger goes with his boot rather than his head and steers his effort over the bar.
34' WIDE! Gerard strikes the free-kick low towards the bottom-left corner, but his effort travels just wide of the left post.
32' Olmo turns on the edge of the box and is brought down by a loose challenge from Glik. Spain have a free-kick in a central position that provides them with a great opportunity to double their advantage.
29' Spain have the precious goal and can now play the game on their terms. La Roja will be a different proposition now that Poland have to come out of their shape.
27' Morata has scored four of Spain’s last five goals at the Euros, while since the start of the 2016 tournament, he is the highest scoring player for the national team (17 goals in 33 games).
Gerard Moreno
25' Gerard does well to get away from his marker and drill a low ball into the box that Morata converts.
Álvaro Morata
25' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! THE OFFSIDE IS OVERTURNED!!!! MORATA SCORES!!!! 1-0 SPAIN!!! Morata gets his side off the mark in the tournament with a close-range finish. Gerard is the architect as he cuts inside from the right flank and fires a low ball towards the six-yard box. Morata breaks in behind Bereszynski and slots a strike past Szczesny from close range.
25' OFFSIDE! Morata puts the ball into the net, but the goal is ruled offside by the linesman.
23' Spain are edging their way forward to push the Poland defence back. Sousa will not want to see his defensive line drop too deep.
21' Enrique will once again be satisfied that his team are enjoying the majority of possession, but their prowess in the final third is once again a concern.
19' Lewandowski attempts to lead a counter with a solo run at the Spain defence. Alba halts his progress and wins a free-kick for his team.
19' CHANCE! Morata heads the ball into the dangerous position in the box after latching on to a pass from Pedri. However, Rodri miskicks his effort towards goal and Poland are able to clear their lines.
18' Alba sends a low ball into the box from the left flank that causes Glik to slide to clear ahead of Morata. The striker regains possession, but his clipped pass is cleared behind by Bednarek.
16' Olmo angles a deep cross into the box from the left flank. Gerard attacks the delivery at the back post and wins a corner off the body of Puchacz.
15' Morata almost steers a pass through to Olmo through the middle of the Poland defence. Glik closes and makes the interception at the vital moment.
13' Lewandowski tries to latch on to a long ball over the top from Jozwiak. He jostles with Torres for possession, but the defender does just enough to oust off it in the Spain penalty area.
12' Torres tries an ambitious strike from 35 yards after a period of Spain possession, but he sends his effort harmlessly wide of the target.
10' SAVE! Olmo gets the better of Jozwiak down the left flank, brushing the wing-back off the ball. He cuts in on his right foot and goes for a strike from the edge of the box that is comfortably saved by Szczesny.
9' Morata sends Gerard down the right-inside channel and he sends a low ball across the face of goal. Bednarek sticks out a leg, but fails to clear he danger. Fortunately for Poland, Glik is alive to the second ball to bring it away.
7' Laporte goes down under pressure from Lewandowski in the box as the Poland skipper attempts to put the defender under pressure. Spain get the free-kick.
6' OVER! Space opens up for Klich to surge forward to the edge of the Spain box. He goes for a strike at goal from 20 yards and his effort just sails over the bar with Simon backpedling.
4' Poland have been energetic in the early stages and are keen to put pressure on La Roja in possession.
2' Zielinski goes down in the box under pressure from Gerard. The referee puts his whistle to his mouth, but does not award a penalty to Poland as La Roja clear their lines.
1' We're under way in Seville.
This will be the first meeting between Spain and Poland at a major tournament. Spain have won eight of their 10 matches against Poland (D1 L1), with the sole Polish victory taking place over 40 years ago (November 1980), in a friendly played in Barcelona (2-1).
Poland have made three changes to their side from their defeat to Slovakia. Krychowiak serves his suspension, while Rybus and the goalscorer in their loss Linetty also make way from the line-up. Moder, Puchacz and Swiderski come into the team to replace the trio.
Enrique has made only one change to his side from La Roja's draw against Sweden. Gerard comes into the starting line-up in the final third to replace Ferran Torres, who drops to the bench. The Spain boss keeps faith with Morata through the middle of the attack along with Olmo on the left flank. Pedri also retains his spot in the side ahead of Thiago.
POLAND SUBS: Pawel Dawidowicz, Tomasz Kedziora, Kacper Kozlowski, Karol Linetty, Lukasz Skorupski, Maciej Rybus, Przemyslaw Placheta, Przemyslaw Frankowski, Lukasz Fabianski, Dawid Kownacki, Jakub Swierczok, Michal Helik.
POLAND (3-4-3): Wojciech Szczesny; Bartosz Bereszynski, Kamil Glik, Jan Bednarek; Kamil Jozwiak, Mateusz Klich, Jakub Moder, Tymoteusz Puchacz; Karol Swiderski, Robert Lewandowski, Piotr Zielinski.
SPAIN SUBS: David de Gea, Cesar Azpilicueta, Diego Llorente, Thiago Alcantara, Ferran Torres, Eric Garcia, Robert Sanchez, Jose Gaya, Fabian Ruiz, Adama Traore, Mikel Oyarzabal, Pablo Sarabia.
SPAIN (4-3-3) Unai Simon; Marcos Llorente, Aymeric Laporte, Pau Torres, Jordi Alba; Koke, Rodri, Pedri; Gerard Moreno, Alvaro Morata, Dani Olmo.
Poland were underwhelming in their opening match of the Euros and were beaten by Slovakia courtesy of a second-half goal from Milan Skriniar. Robert Lewandowski barely had a kick, although he and his team-mates were not aided by Grzegorz Krychowiak's dismissal, which allowed Slovakia to take control of the contest. Paulo Sousa and his men have to produce a positive result tonight otherwise their last-16 hopes will be slim to say the least.
Spain were frustrated in their opening match of the tournament against Sweden after being held to a goalless draw in Seville. La Roja were predictable at times in their approach and lacked a clinical edge. Gerard Moreno almost made an impact off the bench, although he saw a late header saved by Robin Olsen. Sweden's win over Slovakia yesterday has put Luis Enrique and his men under pressure. A response is required to build momentum in their campaign.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Euro 2020 Group E clash between Spain and Poland in Seville.
