England vs. Spain - Football Match Report

England manager Gareth Southgate and striker Marcus Rashford

England manager Gareth Southgate is expected to look at the depth of his squad against Spain and Switzerland

The defender was eventually loaded onto a stretcher and carted off the field with Danny Rose inserted as his replacement.

Rashford was working hard trying to get England going but his shot from 25 yards on 77 minutes deflected kindly for De Gea before a solid stop from the Spanish keeper, against from his Manchester United teammate, with the game winding down, kept Spain in front.

"It was a double impact".

Posting on Twitter, the player wrote: "Thank you for all the love and support I am doing fine and am in the best hands. I'm a fighter so I will be back soon!" The familiar chants from the summer could be heard throughout the game as the Three Lions supporters let manager Gareth Southgate know "he's the one" and that "football is coming home again". "He's talking and seems fairly comfortable", Southgate said. "We'll have to assess him overnight and tomorrow". It's obviously a nasty-looking fall and collision. It was hard but we had good spells in the game and we probably created the better chances.

On this occasion at Wembley it wasn't to be however, as Saul and Rodrigo cancelled out Marcus Rashford's impressive early opening goal to win the opening match of their Nations League Group A clash for Spain.

The 23-year-old sent in an exceptional pass for Marcus Rashford's opener on his first global start since September 2015 - an appearance that came just a week before the disgusting injury that he recently revealed almost cost him his leg. We've thrown him in after a few games of the season.

Spain settled on the ball very quickly, playing out from the back - with an early searching pass forward from Sergio Ramos finding Rodrigo through on goal, only for the flag to go up for offsides.

"That balance of having a left footer, with him and Danny [Rose], was an advantage in several situations".

However, Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul struck back nearly immediately, before Valencia attacker Rodrigo tapped home from a free kick to send La Roja in at half-time in the ascendancy.
