Spain huffed and puffed, making hard work of their Euro 2016 opener before a late Gerard Pique goal blew away the Czech Republic resistance – yet it could not conceal further evidence that Vicente del Bosque's champions may lack a killer instinct.Spain had three-quarters of the possession up until the interval and played most of the game in the Czech half, but still did not have the wit or invention to break down their more limited opponents.The most important thing for the coach was that this was at least an improvement on Spain's last three opening games at major tournaments – a defeat in the 2014 World Cup by the Netherlands, a draw with Italy in Euro 2012 and a loss in the 2010 World Cup to Switzerland.
