Scott Parker admits England are still not in the same class as Spain but believes their organisation and commitment can help them progress at Euro 2012.
The midfielder played a part in England setting up a quarter-final meeting with Italy, and in the process avoid meeting the Spanish, via topping their group. Parker is a realist and acknowledges the quality Spain possess but hopes England can cause an upset as they grow in confidence.
The Tottenham player told TheFA.com: "Everyone talks about Spain and how great they are at passing the ball. Not every team is as good as Spain, that's the reality. There's not many teams who have been as good as Spain since I've been alive."
