Spain beat the Czech Republic in their Euro 2016 opening game.

Manchester City midfielder David Silva has taken to Twitter to reach to Spain kicked off their Euro 2016 campaign with a slender win over Czech Republic.
Gerard Pique’s late header in the dying stages of the game was enough to give the Spaniard’s all three points in their Group D opener.
It was a frustrating afternoon for Vincente del Bosque’s side as they dominated the game throughout but failed to convert their chances.

Indeed, the score could have been much different had they not come up against a resilient Petr Cech and his defence.
Nonetheless, the reigning champions secured all three points as they started the defence of their crown with a win.
And Silva, who earned his 100th international cap in the game, was clearly pleased as he shared his delight at the result on Twitter.

"Debut in the Euro, victory and 100 games, do not ask more! Thanks to everyone for the congratulations! Viva Spain! ," he wrote.
He was not the only Spain star to take to social media either, as Sergio Ramos, Andres Iniesta and Chelsea duo Cesc Fabregas and Pedro all tweeted too.
"The fight has been rewarded. A debut victory, but we always want more," wrote Ramos.
Empezamos la competición con el mejor pie!!!! A seguir el camino!!!! Grande equipo!!! Grande afición!!!! pic.twitter.com/LdeLAWyH33— Andrés Iniesta (@andresiniesta8) June 13, 2016
"We started the competition with the best foot forward! Follow the path! Big team! Big love!" added Iniesta.
"A great victory and a very polished way to start the European Championships. Onwards!"
Spain will now be hoping they can enjoy more comfortable victories as they look to progress past the group stages.
They take on Turkey next before a final group game against Croatia and know they will need to be more clinical than they were in against the Czech Republic.
