The Euros are just around the corner and holders Spain are the team everyone is looking forward to watching. Spain were dumped out of the 2014 World Cup in the group stages. Prior to that they won three major championships - Euro 2008, World Cup 2010, and of course the last European Championship, in 2012. We've never seen a team dominate the world stage the way Spain did in recent years. The Spaniards will have no problem progressing through the Euro 2016 group stages.
Spain might not be the team they once were but will certainly make it out of the group stages this time, especially given the format.
What made the Spanish so successful during their period of world dominance was three-fold. They had some of the best individual talent in world football, possessed the ball with consummate ease and enjoyed team chemistry other nations dream of.
The Spanish team was comprised of players who played together week in week out. Almost all of their players played in Spain, plying their trade at either Real Madrid or Barcelona. They could put out a midfield quartet that replicated Barcelona's.

How To Win At Spain Soccer Team Betting
The best Spaniards in the football are now spread out all over the globe. The other main problem for Spain is their lack of consistency up front. Yes, they have Costa who is an absolute world beater, but he and his national team have never seen eye to eye. His style doesn't seem to mesh well with the national squad.
If you were thinking of futures, then don't bother with Costa as top scorer. I think Morata will start for Spain and this could be his breakout tournament. We have seen him perform for Juventus in the Champions League and we think he could do it for Spain this summer, too. Bovada has him at +3300 for top scorer.
Can Spain win the whole tournament? The short answer is absolutely. They still have some fantastic players, perhaps their most improved position is having De Gea in goal. The man is a match winner and can help them reach the late stages of the tournament.
They also have a lot to prove to the world, and more importantly, the Spanish people after the disappointing 2014 World Cup display. Spain are +500 to win Euro 2016, and if you search through our partners below then they could be higher. We like their chances of being one of the finalists.
