Spain forgets France record, doping taunts at Euro
Spain will need its first competitive victory in seven meetings with France to continue its bid for a record third straight major title. France was the last team to beat Spain in a major tournament.
Spain has endured taunting over its recent doping scandals, with a satirical French TV program picking mainly on cyclist Alberto Contador, but also other athletes including Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas.
Spain forward Jesus Navas says "it wasn't nice" but the players' will be fully focused in Donetsk, Ukraine as "it's a game we want to win."
