You're reading: Spain forgets France record, doping taunts at Euro

GNIEWINO, Poland (AP) — Spain's players say they won't be dwelling on their past record or recent doping taunts aimed at them by France when the two sides meet in the European Championship quarterfinals on Saturday.

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.”
