UEFA Nations League Report: England v Spain 09 September 2018

Saul Niguez and Rodrigo scored as Spain came from behind to win 2-1 at Wembley Stadium at the start of its UEFA Nations League campaign.

"Big moments you need a firm referee who don't, under the pressure, get wrong decisions, basically".

And both teams were on the scoresheet before the quarter-hour, with Marcus Rashford scoring from an inch-perfect Luke Shaw cross on the counter-attack and Saul smashing home a first-time shot in traffic from Rodrigo's cross to make it 1-1.

But the game was overshadowed by a horrific injury to England's left-back, Luke Shaw.

He was fortunate though when he dropped the ball under pressure from Welbeck in stoppage time and the Arsenal man rolled home only to have his celebrations cut short.

England have now lost three matches in a row - against Croatia, Belgium and now Spain - proof they are still a work in progress.

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

It also alleged that early on, senior officials toyed with using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office. Asked if he trusts his White House staffers, Trump said, "I do, but what I do now is I look around the room".

Shaw, who has had a hard recovery from a bad leg break three years against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League, and has often been singled out for criticism by Jose Mourinho, had played a key role in the game, which England lost 2-1.

"We tried to press and play with high intensity".

Playing bravely out from the back rather than clearing long, England worked the ball to Kane who found the marauding Shaw on the left and his precise pass was flawless for Rashford to slot past his Manchester United team mate David De Gea.

De Gea had been labelled as one of the main culprits for Spain's poor showing in being knocked out by the hosts at the last 16 in Russian Federation as he made just one save in the whole competition.

"The system in Spain has produced some of the best midfielders in the world. We are talking about a player of a top level".

The match was halted for almost five minutes soon after the restart when England defender Shaw went down after a collision with Dani Carvajal and had to be stretchered off the field.

Shaw appeared to be wearing an oxygen mask as he was stabilised on a stretcher and then wheeled off the field. At one point, they waved away concerned team-mates.
