Spain take on Turkey in their second group game and Vicente del Bosque will hope his team can be more clinical than they were in the first game. Czech Republic mounted a strong defence to frustrate the defending champions and it took a last gasp header from Gerard Pique to get them the three points. They are likely to face a tougher task against Turkey, but could be afforded more space to play their game.

Turkey, on the other hand, need to get at least a point against Spain after losing their opening encounter to Croatia. They would have seen from Spain's game against the Czech's that sitting back is not an option as they are bound to break them down eventually. Fatih Terim has admitted that they will play their game when they take on the two-time winners, but are rank outsiders to get all three points.

The Turks have not defeated Spain in 52 years and they will hope to maintain that record. La Furia Roja are ahead in the head-to-head with four wins to Turkey's one in seven games, with the other two being draws.

What manager's say

Vicente del Bosque (Spain): "The important thing is that we got the three points in the first game, and we need to prepare for this game without being distracted by the first one. We also have to approach this game expecting Turkey to make it really difficult for us. They are a great team who play great football – they have great players and we have to prepare ourselves for the difficulties they will pose us."

Fatih Terim (Turkey): "I have never been the kind of coach to tell my players to sit back and try to clear as many balls as possible. You can't just go and play Spain without trying to actually play. If you just try to defend and close the game down, they will eventually open it up. We will try to play our own game."
