Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 2pm BST. ITV 1 and ITV 1 HD will telecast the match live coverage in the UK.


Defending champions Spain will kick start the Euro 2016 campaign when they take on Czech Republic in a Group D clash. The La Roja have won the tournament twice and start this edition of the European championship as one of the favourites.

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has been in the limelight due to an alleged sex scandal and it remains to be seen if he will start on Monday or will Vicente del Bosque go ahead with veteran keeper Iker Casillas.

Meanwhile, Arsenal stopper Petr Cech will be the key player for Czech Republic as they hope to beat Spain in their first group stage clash. A victory over the defending champions will be a massive boost for them.
