GOOD EVENING FROM GRANADA
Welcome to our live coverage of the World Cup 2022 qualifying match between Spain and Greece at Los Carmenes.
The two nations have been drawn together on Group B with Sweden, Georgia and Kosovo ahead of the finals, which are set to take place in Qatar next year in November.
Spain are getting ready for the delayed Euro 2020 competition where they will start things off against Poland, Slovakia and Sweden in the group stage.
The Roja are also looking forward to the Nations League semi-final against Italy later on in the year but they will have to put all that aside tonight.
Spain manager Luis Enrique dropped Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who plays second fiddle to Edouard Mendy at Stamford Bridge, and called up in-form Brighton shot-stopper Robert Sanchez.
Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has made the squad even though he is still nursing a sprain and that is why Enrique may prefer to start things off with Athletic Bilbao ace Inigo Martinez and Leeds defender Diego Llorente at centre-back.
The hosts will also be missing Barcelona ace Sergi Roberto and Villarreal star Pau Torres, who has attracted interest in the Premier League, as they’ve both suffered a muscle injury.
Greece manager John van’t Schip has called up Norwich loanee Dimitris Giannoulis but the left-back won’t be available against Spain due to a head injury and will thus return on Sunday for the international friendly against Honduras.
Van’t Schip is also without key AZ defender Pantelis Chatzidiakos, who is sidelined with a knee injury
