Barca target Laporte scores brilliant first goal for Spain, Pedri gets pre-assist

Aymeric Laporte has just scored Spain's second goal of the day against Slovakia.

Spain's goalscoring attack started with a corner: after Pedri received the ball in the attacking midfield, he sent it to the box to find Gerard Moreno – the latter outplayed the Slovakia keeper and crossed the ball to find Laporte's head.

Full house: 4 called-up Barca players make Spain's starting XI for decisive Slovakia game

Eric Garcia, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets and Pedri are all in Spain's starting eleven for the Euro 2020 game against Slovakia.

Sergio Busquets missed the first two Spain matches of the tournament due to the Covid-19 while Eric Garcia was benched.

As a reminder, Luis Enrique's side have got just 2 points after the first two group stage fixtures, which means that they must win the Slovakia clash.

Slovakia, in turn, need to claim at least a point to definitely qualify for the last 16.

The kick-off is at 18:00 CET.
