Morata: It is a dream for me

Alvaro Morata has confessed that he still has to pinch himself at times when he represents Spain, following his brace in Spain's 3-0 Euro victory over Turkey on Friday.

The former Real Madrid striker netted twice in the first half of their Group D clash with the Turkish side at Allianz Riviera in Nice, taking his goal tally to five international strikes from 11 appearances for the Spanish team.

Speaking to Telecinco after the match, the Juventus forward was delighted with his contribution and praised his teammates for the positive team spirit in camp.

"My two goals in the match? I am very happy with the team match, goals. Before these matches I used to watch Spain on television. I'm here now. It is a dream for me," he told Telecinco.

"When things are going well people say that we do not score goals … we must follow and work. We played a great game against a difficult team.

"The most important thing is that we have a great atmosphere. We laughed, we played … and that looks in the field."

Meanwhile, Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta was equally delighted with his side's showing on the night, labelling it 10 out of 10, before calling for consistency going forward.

"We had a difficult opponent, but we had a lot of possession and kept on getting better. I would give the players a 10 out of 10, and the fans as well," Iniesta told reporters.

"We have to keep growing as the tournament goes us and minimise our mistakes – and that is what we did today."

Vincent Del Bosque's men will face Croatia in their last group encounter at Matmut Atlantique on Tuesday night.
