Spain sail through to the last 16 and Tony Pulis seems to forget all the Turkey players' names

Reigning champions Spain marched into the second round of Euro 2016 with a 3-0 stroll over Turkey.

Vicente del Bosque’s team dominated the game and are top of Group D and into the last 16.

They were rarely troubled in Nice – becoming the first team to score three goals at this year’s tournament – two in three minutes from Alvaro Morata and Nolito, and a third from Juventus forward Morata.

While Spain looked at their imperious best in the Allianz Riviera, everyone was pretty disappointed with Turkey’s performance.

We did all enjoy ITV commentator Tony Pulis’s lack of knowledge about some of the players’ names though.

It’s fair to say he wasn’t everyone’s first choice for commentator.
