Firey start for Spain

Spain opened the group of death with a flash of life, as Alvaro Morata, Fabián Ruiz and Dani Carvajal scored to rack up a 3-0 victory.

Spain got their Euro 2024 campaign underway with a 3-0 win on Saturday, as they beat one of the 2022 World Cup semi-finalists in Croatia.

Luis de la Fuente has plenty of tremendous attacking options in his squad, and 16-year-old Lamine Yamal was one of those who shone in the Group B opener.

The Barcelona winger assisted Dani Carvajal for 3-0, after captain Alvaro Morata opened the scoring and Fabian Ruiz doubled the lead.

Croatia thought they had pulled one back late on, when Bruno Petkovic won a penalty and scored in the aftermath after hitting the post. However, encroachment meant the goal was chalked off, ensuring a Spanish clean sheet.

La Roja top Group B early at Euro 2024 and hope to add a third European crown after wins in 2008 and 2012.
