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.
Silva believes the side can cope with being favourites, but insists they must stay focused if they are to secure Euro glory once again.
"At this stage it is normal that they make you favourites. We have won the last two European Championships and also for the games in the past few days," the Manchester City attacker said. "But we need to keep our feet on the ground. We are calm and we need to continue that way.
"We have had a very good start. We have won two games and now we have a very difficult game against Croatia.
"We need to win or draw to stay top of the group. We need to maintain our level and if it remains so high, we can win the tournament."
