Euro 2016: Spain beat Turkey by 3-0

Nice (France), June 18 (IANS) Spain booked their place in the knockout stages of Euro 2016 with an emphatic 3-0 win over Turkey in Nice on Friday.

Alvaro Morata gave Spain the lead late in the first half, rising between Turkey’s centre-backs to superbly direct Nolito’s pinpoint cross into Volkan Babacan’s top left-hand corner.

The defending champions doubled their advantage within three minutes with Nolito turning goalscorer this time, taking advantage of a poor Mehmet Topal header to finish from close range.

Morata added his second, and Spain’s third, shortly after the restart.

That result means that Turkey will need to beat the Czech Republic in their final game to have a chance of staying in the competition.
