Our prediction for this Euro 2020 match:
Spain will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over Romania when they host Faroe Islands at Estadio Municipal El Molinon. La Furia Roja are determined to keep their 100% record in Group F intact and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the rock-bottom side in Sunday’s football match. It has to be noted, though, that the hosts will be without suspended defender Diego Llorente, who was sent off in the 2-1 victory over the Romanians.
Anyhow, Faroe Islands have nothing to play for in the qualifier against Spain and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling la Roja’s party at Estadio Municipal El Molinon. When the two teams met in Torshavn earlier in the process Spain crushed Faroe Islands 4-1 and you should bear in mind that Robert Moreno’s troops are after their fourth consecutive win over the minnows in all competitions.
Highlighted Player (Sergio Ramos):
Over the years Sergio Ramos has established himself as one of the best defenders in the world. The Spanish footballer was born in Camas on 30 March, 1986 and he is a product of Sevilla’s youth academy. He made 39 league appearances for Sevilla and he played 26 games for the reserve team as well from 2003 to 2005.
In the summer of 2005 Sergio Ramos signed a deal with Real Madrid for a fee of €27 million and it has to be noted that he made 33 appearances for the capital club in the 2005/2006 La Liga campaign. The 183-cm-tall full back is capable of playing as a right back as well and, as a result, he often scores for Real Madrid.
Sergio Ramos helped Real Madrid win two Champions League trophies (2013/2014, 2015/2016) and he has three La Liga titles with los Blancos. The Spanish defender won the 2010 FIFA World Cup with la Furia Roja, while clinching Euro 2008 and 2010 titles with the Spanish national team as well.
Highlighted Team (Faroe Islands):
Faroe Islands gained membership of FIFA on July 2, 1988 and they played their first official game on August 24 against Iceland. They were beaten by the Icelanders in Akranes, but two years later they recorded probably the most significant victory in the history of the national team as they defeated Austria 1-0 in Euro 1992 qualifiers.
Faroe Islands have yet to qualify for a major tournament, but they have been making progress year by year. The Landsliðið play their home games at Torsvollur and the capacity of the venue is 6.000. Faroe Islands recorded their biggest win against Gibraltar on March 1, 2014 (4-1) and they suffered their biggest defeat in 1996 when they were beaten 8-1 by Yugoslavia in front of home fans.
In the 2016 European Championship qualifiers Faroe Islands recorded a double victory over Greece, but the minnows eventually failed to book their place at the showpiece tournament in France. The likes of Frodi Benjaminsen, Oli Johannesen, Rogvi Jacobsen, Todi Jonsson and Jakup Mikkelsen are the most notable footballers who played for the Faroe Islands national team.
