Spain come from behind to beat England

Spain come from behind to beat England

The second half was overshadowed by a nasty-looking head injury sustained by England left back Luke Shaw who needed lengthy treatment after an accidental clash.

Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez, who equalised for Spain in the first half after Rashford had given England the lead, also won plaudits.

Before the game, England coach Gareth Southgate had warned that his team still had much to prove on the global stage, claiming that the country's winning record against world football's elite has been "non-existent" since the World Cup success in 1966.

Gareth Southgate handed starts to Marcus Rashford in the attack as Raheem Sterling missed out through injury, while there was also a start for defenders Luke Shaw and Joe Gomez.

"He may have mistakes like everybody else, but we have one of the best in the world".

That could mean United full back Shaw faces a lay-off and misses his club's trip to Watford next Saturday depending on the outcome of tests.

The home side lost 2-1 at Wembley in their opening UEFA Nations League match.

England and Spain will also face World Cup runners-up Croatia in League A Group 4 of the UEFA's new tournament created to add spice to the global calendar. But there's a level for us to go to and that's a really good challenge for us over the next couple of years.

"I don't think we were under any illusions as a coaching team", Southgate said.

Manchester United have been dealt another blow after Marcus Rashford suffered a suspected hamstring injury during England's defeat to Spain on Saturday night. He has named an otherwise youthful squad including three debutantes as he looks to get off to a winning start.

Early in that game, which Real Madrid won 3-1, he clashed with Mohammed Salah in an incident that saw the Egypt global sustain a shoulder injury that forced him off prematurely and saw his participation in the World Cup limited. "I am a fighter, so I will be back soon".
