Gareth Southgate assesses England's defeat to Spain

Gareth Southgate assesses England's defeat to Spain

On Saturday, Ramos captained Spain to a 2-1 victory over England at Wembley in Enrique's first game in charge.

"In the big moments you need the referee to stay strong, but unfortunately he has bottled it", said Kane.

Belgium and Croatia deservedly beat England in Russian Federation, while this loss to Spain saw a return of those failings when up against the very best.

In the past Spain were vulnerable whenever they lost possession but against England they seemed more comfortable without the ball and defending with their backs against the wall, as they had to do in the latter stages of the game. "At moments we compete and we look like being able to create chances". We both have the same objective and before judging someone I like to meet them for myself in person.

"But we can see there's a period of time for those players to come through".

Shaw connected with a header as he challenged Dani Carvajal for the ball but collided with the Spain defender, fell backward and his head bounced off the ground.

However, Kane, who picked up his Golden Boot for finishing top scorer at the World Cup before kick-off at Wembley, insists there is still plenty to be positive about.

Gareth Southgate gave a start to Marcus Rashford, a player now struggling to make his mark with Manchester United this season.

"This is the world number one".

David De Gea claimed he was fouled by Danny Welbeck.

"That's what I want, to reduce the space and press a lot and against a team with three defenders it was very hard", Luis Enrique said.

The former Barcelona boss fielded a very different side to the one that flopped during the World Cup, having dropped Koke and Jordi Alba, while losing David Silva, Gerard Pique and Andres Iniesta to retirement. "There are obviously some older ones who have good goalscoring records at club level but I'm not sure that's necessarily the route we want to go". Shaw appeared to be wearing an oxygen mask as he was stabilised on a stretcher and then wheeled off the field.
