Vicente del Bosque has advised caution after Spain thrashed Turkey 3-0 in an energy-sapping Euro 2016 encounter. He says the team should let go of any pride for now as it would be too early to start celebrations despite reaching the Round of 16.

La Roja have already qualified to the knock-out stage though there’s one more game left to be played, having won two previous games.
Alvaro Morata was both hardworking and lucky to get a brace against the Turks in favor of Spain, and the famous coach Del Bosque was very excited but just had to remind everyone that it’s not time for fireworks.
“We haven’t achieved anything. We have to continue with the same generosity, the same delivery,” the Coach said post-match, AS reports.
“We’ve managed to qualify for the next phase, which was our first objective. We played really well and this encourages us to move forward.
“Like I said, we played well, we defended with order, we had chances, we controlled the game at all times. Possibly the Turks in their eagerness to score left themselves unprotected at the back, while the Czechs sat back and defended with more men.
“Morata worked well and he sacrificed, sometimes even covering on the flank for Juanfran.”
