It’s game on! Defending European Championship winners Spain faces Turkey on June 17 at the Allianz Arena in Nice, France in what is another crucial game in the group stages. Turkey really cannot afford to lose to this one, or they will most likely be heading home early for a… turkish bath! But joking aside, the Turks will have to put their bodies on the line if they want to stand any chance of getting a decent result. Click down for the live stream to watch!
This Spanish team is packed with the best of La Liga, including legends from both the big teams Barcelona and Real Madrid. It’s worth noting that Real and their rivals Atletico Madrid contested the Champions League Final too, so these players have a lot of pedigree right now.
But Turkey should never be underestimated. In fact, they will make themselves hard to beat by playing deep at first, not letting Spain’s forward Alvaro Morata get behind their back line. Then, with the help of playmaker Arda Turan, they will counter attack and look for the perfect moment to strike. It’ll really be a fascinating game of cat and mouse.
So far, Spain haven’t been distracted by allegations aimed at David De Gea, who has been accused of allegedly organizing a underage sex party for his under-21 teammates back in 2013. He’s strongly denied the claims and sensibly left it in the hands of lawyers. We’ll stay tuned for more.
As for the game, it all depends on what Spain team shows up. They can either be electric or they could be dire. But Turkey be warned, if they are electric they’ll be impossible to deal with.
