Spain not moved by favourites tag - Silva
La Roja are looking to add to their back-to-back Euro crowns, and are on the right track so far in France despite the pressure put on them
David Silva says it is "normal" for Spain to be named favourites to win Euro 2016, but has urged his side to remain level-headed in the hunt for a third consecutive European crown.
Spain headed into the tournament as double defending champions but a less-than-impressive performance at the 2014 World Cup meant Vicente del Bosque's side were not the clear favourites.
But after solid showings in their opening two group games - 1-0 and 3-0 wins over the Czech Republic and Turkey respectively - Spain have staked their claim at Euro 2016. 
Silva believes the side can cope with being favourites, but insists they must stay focused if they are to secure Euro glory once again.
