Group D had a dramatic ending with Croatia coming from behind to beat Spain 2-1 and to finish in top spot and the easier half of the draw.

Spain had looked comfortable, but Croatia showed their quality to score a late winner and they are now proving a popular bet to win Euro 2016.

Elsewhere, Turkey have a chance of reaching the last-16 after their win over a Czech Republic side that crashed out without a victory.

It’s hard to gauge exactly where Spain stand at the moment. Although undoubtedly one of the strongest teams in the competition, they are seemingly undergoing a period of transition at the moment as the likes of Xavi, Fernando 

Torres, David Villa and Xabi Alonso have all retired from international football since the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

In Vincent Del Bosque, the Spaniards still possess a coach with knowledge of how to win international tournaments and players like Andres Iniesta, Juan Mata and Sergio Ramos provide a magnificent spine that should be strong enough to win this group at the very least.

Turkey managed to qualify for this summer’s competition by virtue of being the best third-placed team in qualifying. After finishing behind Czech Republic in that group though, a big improvement is required from the Crescent-Stars if they’re to make any waves in France this summer.

The key man is undoubtedly Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan. The skipper can pull the strings from the middle of the park whilst being the key creative force – if he turns on the style, Turkey will be very hard to overcome for any team in Group D.


Croatia may well be a team to watch out for in France this summer. Vatreni often seem to have the makings of a very capable side with a few missing links, although it’s fair to say that this time around it’s much more difficult to spot those weak spots in the side.

Qualifying as expected behind Italy, Croatia may not have the quality to win the whole tournament, but in the likes of Mario Mandzukic and Luka Modric, they have players with serious world class ability, who will be keen to show their stripes (or squares, as it were) in France this summer. 


Arsenal’s Petr Cech will be looking to lead the Czech Republic from the back this summer. Although not the footballing heavyweight they were 10 years ago, this 

Czech side showed how handy they can be in qualifying.Topping a group that included Turkey, Iceland and the Netherlands, Pavel Vrba’s side showed their credentials with some excellent results in qualifying. 

Cech will of course be the key man, but players like Tomas Necid and Vaclav Kadlec will have their say in the attacking areas of the pitch.
