The youth side's coach was delighted with his charges' 3-0 win over Netherlands to secure top spot in Group B but warns that the toughest tests in Israel are yet to come

Spain Under-21s coach Julien Lopetegui has hailed his side's current vein of form following their 3-0 victory against Netherlands.

La Roja convincingly strolled past Cor Pot's side thanks to goals from Alvaro Morata, Isco and Alvaro Vazquez to secure Group B's top spot and advance to the semi-finals of Euro 2013.

Lopetegui was thrilled at his side's displays thus far in the tournament in Israel but urged his charges to focus on the next task at hand.

"We are happy with the three points and we are playing very well," the 46-year-old told reporters after the match.

"But we are thinking on a game-by-game basis and now we are looking towards our next match, which is the most important yet."

Spain will face Norway in the semi-finals on June 15, while Netherlands prepare to lock horns with Italy the same day, having finished second in Group B.
