Alvaro Morata netted twice for Spain in their 3-0 win over Turkey as Fatih Terim’s side put on another disappointing display for the second game in-a-row at Euro 2016.

The Crescent-Stars were on the receiving end of the largest winnings margin of the tournament so far, as they now sit bottom of Group D, on the verge of elimination.

Turkey on the verge of elimination

Terim’s men failed to ignite against Croatia, which they lost 1-0, and he wanted a response, but a sublime display from the Spanish swept them aside with ease.

Morata opened the scoring on 34 minutes with a brilliant header past Volkan Babacan, and Nolito added a second minutes later, even though he slipped as he took the shot.

Spain’s third went in three minutes into the second-half, when Jordi Alba passes to Morata, who tapped home following a brilliant 22-pass build-up.

Keeper top performer from back five

Volkan Babacan (6 out of 10) – The keeper managed to pull of some impressive saves, which kept the scoreline down, but he was let down by his weak defence.

Gokhan Gonul (5 out of 10) – Gonul struggled against the pace and skill of Nolito, who bagged an assist and a goal, but was willing to get forward at times.

Mehmet Topal (4 out of 10) – Defensively, which is his job after all, was poor and looked shaky when Spain was coming at the back line, making a huge mistake for the second goal.

Hakan Balta (5 out of 10) – Again, another defender that struggled with the attacking ability of Spain, but did better than his partner to say the least.

Caner Erkin (5 out of 10) – Erkin was caught out of position a number of times, which allowed the Spain full-back to get in behind, and that allowed Juanfran to provide service.

Midfield lacking aptitude once more

Ozan Tufan (5 out of 10) – Was overran by the Spanish midfield trio of Silva, Fabregas and Iniesta, and with that factor he was ineffective and provided little service.

Selcuk Inan (5 out of 10) – Replaced by Yunus Malli for the final 20 minutes, and for the vast majority of the game, he failed to keep possession, which allowed Spain to go on the attack.

Oguzhan Ozyakup (6 out of 10) – Was probably the only player out of the midfield three to provide some good passes, which found the forwards, but he couldn’t do it all on his own.

Front line draws blank again

Hakan Calhanoglu (4 out of 10) – Replaced at half-time by Nuri Sahin after a first-half to forget for the Bayer Leverkusen man, a really disappointing display.

Burak Yilmaz (6 out of 10) – Provided positive many runs going forward, and had one or two half chances to score, but despite him not having much service, he never gave up.

Arda Turan (4 out of 10) – Yet another disappointing display from the captain, summed up with his own fans booing him every time he touched the ball later in the game.

Substitutes

Nuri Sahin (5 out of 10) – Replaced Hakan Calhanoglu at half-time, and didn’t play too badly during the second 45 minutes.

Olcay Sahan (5 out of 10) – Came on for the final half-hour in place of Oguzhan Ozyakup, but by this stage the game was gone.

Yunus Malli (5 out of 10) – Had one or two sights at goal after coming on for Selcuk Inan for the final 20 minutes of the game.
