Vicente del Bosque’s men bossed the Group D tie from the kickoff, with a double by Juventus’ Alvaro Morata and a first competitive international goal from Nolito sealing a comfortable win.

Spain, aiming for an unprecedented third consecutive Euros title, can seal top spot in the pool with just a draw against Croatia in their final group game on Tuesday.

Turkey need to beat the Czech Republic in their final match and hope other results go their way to have any chance of progressing as one of the four best third-placed sides from the six groups.
