Dominant Spain progress to last 16

Moratta scores Spain's third

Alvaro Morata scored with his first touch in the opposition box.

Two-time defending champions Spain progressed to the last 16 of the European Championship with a masterful display against a poor Turkey in Nice.

In the performance of the tournament, Spain became the first team to score more than twice in a Euro 2016 match.

Alvaro Morata headed Spain ahead while Nolito doubled the lead within minutes, side-footing home from close range.

The third goal was a sublime 21-pass move involving nine outfield players, ending with Morata finding the net.
