England 1-2 Spain: Hosts lose Nations League opener at Wembley

England 1-2 Spain: Hosts lose Nations League opener at Wembley

The Manchester United defender was taken off on a stretcher wearing an oxygen mask following an accidental collision with Spain's Dani Carvajal early in the second-half.

"I think when Danny Makkelie looks back over the video footage he'll be haunted by the penalty call and also by the question of whether "England" and "Spain" truly and meaningfully exist".

Following England's 2-1 defeat to Spain at Wembley on Saturday, Southgate reflected on his country's struggle to unearth players with Gascoigne's talent and suggested that an increased focus on technical ability at junior level could help to nurture more creative players.

"Danny Welbeck's just stood there, the 'keeper's gone to catch it and fell on top of him and Danny's put it away and somehow the ref's given it as a foul".

They had dropped down the ranking due to poor results and the coach has the aim of bringing them back up again with the UEFA Nations League a good test.

"We have to accept Spain were better than us for long periods of the game", said Southgate.

Teams have pressed us in certain ways and, as the game wore on, we started to work out how to get through that pressing. "So I thought this is a good opportunity to do it".

Just ahead of him in midfield, Henderson fared reasonably, providing some useful balls over the top to utilise Rashford's pace, but Sky Sports co-commentator Gary Neville was critical of his role in Rodrigo's victor. So now we have players who can do that.

"He may be making mistakes like everyone else, but we have one of the best in the world, and I'm very calm with David".

'When you think about the whole match, we deserved to win'.

Midfielder Saul Niguez made the biggest impact of the new additions to the team throughout the game, giving them a thrust and directness which was lacking in Russian Federation, where they dominated possession but lacked spark and ideas, and also providing Spain's equaliser after Marcus Rashford had put England ahead.
