Euro 2016: Gerard Pique header sees defending champions snatch late win against Czech Republic in Euro Opener.

Gerard Pique scored three minutes from time as Spain began their Euro 2016 campaign with a 1-0 win over the Czech Republic.
In the most one-sided game of the tournament so far, Vicente Del Bosque's side looked like they would not get any reward for their possession until the Barcelona defender headed in Andres Iniesta's cross.        

The Czechs had held on after a string of fine saves from Petr Cech to deny Alvaro Morata and David Silva.
