An opening defeat at the 2010 World Cup, and draw at the 2012 European Championship ultimately counted for little as Spain later won both tournaments.Spain are now unbeaten in 13 European Championship games, but question marks remain over the potency of their attack to give veteran coach Del Bosque plenty of selection headaches for their second Group D tie.The two-time defending champions dominated possession and managed 17 shots on goal, but had to wait until the 87th minute for center-back Pique to head home at the back post.Del Bosque also handed European Championship debuts to Celta Vigo winger Nolito and Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara, although neither are guaranteed to start against Turkey.
