Spain will take on Turkey in their second match of Group D of Euro 2016 at the Allianz Riviera Stadium in Nice on Saturday. With a win over Turkey, Spain can storm into the round of 16.
Vicente Del Bosque will not want to wait till their final match against Croatia, which is definitely going to be a difficult game.
"The important thing is that we got the three points in the first game, and we need to prepare for this game without being distracted by the first one. We also have to approach this game expecting Turkey to make it really difficult for us," Del Bosque was quoted as saying by UEFA.
They are a great team who play great football – they have great players and we have to prepare ourselves for the difficulties they will pose us."
Del Bosque is aware of the strengths of the Turkish side. He also feels that Turkey is going to make things difficult for them.
"I don't think they will be the kind of team to sit back and not take the initiative, they will be after possession, they have bold players, they have brave players. I know the Turkish style of play very well, I don't think they'll give in easily, they'll give a good account of themselves in the face of whatever we throw at them. I'm sure they'll try to make it very difficult for us," Del Bosque added.
Meanwhile, Turkey will be wary of the fact that they have not beaten Spain in the last 52 years. They will want to change that piece of stats when they square off against Spain in the second game of Euro 2016 on Friday.
The Turkey gaffer Fatih Terim wants his boys to play their natural game against Spain in Euro 2016 or else the La Roja boys can take the match away from them with ease.
"I have never been the kind of coach to tell my players to sit back and try to clear as many balls as possible. You can't just go and play Spain without trying to actually play. If you just try to defend and close the game down, they will eventually open it up. We will try to play our own game," Fatih Terim said.
"In the first match we were more like a club side than a national team. It upset us all. There was no reaction after conceding and that isn't good. We will look more like the Turkish team we really are against Spain. Rest assured, it will be different."
