Twelve months on from when it was originally due to take place, Euro 2020 is finally underway.

And it promises to be a star-studded event as Europe’s best compete to win the trophy won by Portugal and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2016.

But against the backdrop of Covid-19, the tournament still faces hurdles. Spain’s players were vaccinated against the virus on the day the tournament started, bringing an end to a long saga but provoking fears of potential side effects before kicking off their Euro 2020 campaign against Sweden on Monday.

Members of the Spanish army administered the vaccines to the squad and coaching staff, the Spain team said in a statement, a day after finally agreeing with the government to inoculate players following a fierce debate on whether they should be allowed to jump the queue ahead of citizens.

Spain’s preparations for the tournament were thrown into chaos when captain Sergio Busquets tested positive for the virus a week before.

On the pitch, Turkey vs Italy kicked things off ahead of a busy run of group-game fixtures that will see three games on both Saturday and Sunday.

Here are the latest tables and group standings. You can find all the fixtures here.
