The Spanish national team won two consecutive Euro tournaments in 2008 and 2012, only to be eliminated by Italy in the last edition

From 2008 to 2012 Spain dominated international football.

La Roja won the Euro 2008 in Austria and Switzerland, and two years later won the FIFA World Cup for the first time in South Africa.

With that success, they were favorites to win the 2012 Euro in Poland and Ukraine and they did it once again.

But with footballers aging, the golden generation couldn’t find a way to go past Italy and lost in the Round of 16 of the 2016 edition in France.

Now they have been drawn into Group F of the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers as they aim to return to glory again.

They will share the group with Sweden, Norway, Romania, the Faroe Islands, and Malta.

Guiza doesn’t regret anything on his career

The former Top Spanish La Liga Goalscorer went to Turkey to continue his career, and now is playing in the Second Division.

Of these six nations, only the Faroe Islands and Malta have yet to appear on a Euro competition.

Meanwhile, the Swedish and the Norwegian have assured at least Playoffs, thanks to their Nations League campaign.
