Spain beat Turkey 3-0 on Friday night as a brace from Álvaro Morata and one for Nolito ensured the holders sealed their last 16 place at Euro 2016.

And La Roja were rewarded for their comprehensive victory over Fatih Terim's men by seeing the Spanish national flag up in lights on the Eiffel Tower.
