New centre-back Aymeric Laporte may not be able to fill in the boots of the Spanish legend, but he will try to solidify the fort.
Pau Torres will be partnering Laporte at the back, while Moreno could be partnering up with Morata in a potential 4-4-2 formation.
After their last victory in the Euro championship back in 2012, it has been difficult for Spain, but the fans are pretty optimistic about this tournament. Spain will begin the quest by looking at a perfect win on Monday night.
Sweden will be starting their European championship campaign with an impressive record of five wins out of five.
