GOAL! SPAIN 1-0 TURKEY (Morata, 35)
Alvaro Morata, whose place has been in question after the opener, leaps high to head home a Nolito cross to give Spain the lead.
Juventus forward, Alvaro Morata, who despite having a low-key performance against the Czech Republic in the Group D opener, keeps his place in the starting lineup, as he leads the attacking line, with Aritz Aduriz left on the bench again.
Morata was replaced by Aduriz against the Czech Republic after he squandered several good opportunities, which led to many believing that the former Real Madrid striker would have been dropped.
However, head coach Vicente Del Bosque has decided to keep faith and stick with the youngster who will play alongside Nolito and David Silva in the attack.
Sergio Busquets, Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas make up the midfield, with Juanfran, Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba starting in front of Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.
Meanwhile, Turkey head coach Fatih Terim has made one adjustment to his team that was defeated by Spain – replacing Burak Yilmaz with forward Cenk Tosun.
Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan also starts the game.
Spain can qualify for the knockout round with a win, while Turkey needs to avoid a defeat to stay in contention.
