After providing an impressive performance against Turkey, Spain will hope to confirm their place as Group D winners against Croatia in Bordeaux’s final game. Pedro is fit and ready to perform if required by Vicente del Bosque.
Tuesday night sees the conclusion of Spain’s European Championship group, and they need just a point against second-placed Croatia in Bordeaux to stop their rivals overtaking them at the top.
Spain eased past Turkey 3-0 in the tournament’s joint highest-scoring fixture so far, and looked impressive doing so as Alvaro Morata knocked two past Volkan Babacan.
Vicente Del Bosque’s side beat Czech Republic before 1-0 in their opening fixture, but now have arguably the toughest opponent remaining in their group.
Croatia currently sit second with four points, but will be desperate to get something against Spain, knowing they could slip to third place and away from the automatic qualification spots.
Doing their best to make Croatia’s route to the last 16 as difficult as possible though, are Del Bosque and his players. The Spain manager has been pleased with his side’s performances so far, but was quick to insist there is a long way to go.
