Turkey were dealt a tough hand when being drawn in a section featuring Spain and Croatia, although the good news is that four third-placed teams will also qualify for the last sixteen.

Fatih Terim is a shrewd operator and he will be working on a way to land a point on Friday night, with a draw giving them a platform to beat the Czechs and go through to the knockout stages.

Turkey are not a daft side and gave a bright display when losing to England 2-1 in a pre-tournament friendly, although they were admittedly second best when losing 1-0 to Croatia and are unlikely to employ an expansive game plan against Spain.

Spain are typically good at keeping the ball, with Andres Iniesta still able to control a game and he will be helped by David Silva, Cesc Fabregas and Pedro. These players are all used to playing with each other and the main issue for Spain is scoring goals.

Therefore, we should expect a tight game with Spain to ultimately run out 1-0 or 2-0 winners after half-time. La Roja are happy to be patient and work away at the opposition before striking when fatigue sets in.

If pushed, we would go for another 1-0 win which would give Vicente del Bosque the potential chance to rotate the squad ahead of their clash with Croatia.
