UEFA Nations League Report: England v Spain 09 September 2018

We still have plenty of hard work to do to match elite, says Kane

Luke Shaw has said he is "doing fine" after he was carted off the field early in the second half of the UEFA Nations League match between England and Spain following a collision with Dani Carvajal.

It was not long before Spain equalised however through Saul Ñiguez, while Rodrigo Moreno's finish gave the visitors the lead midway through the first half.

England's defeat was their first in their last 25 competitive fixtures at Wembley.

After struggling in the FIFA World Cup semi-final against Croatia, Jordan Henderson once again failed to rise to the occasion against one of Europe's best teams and if England are to become a major force he must begin to dictate play from midfield.

Harry Kane released Shaw down the left and the fullback picked out his Manchester United team-mate Rashford with a precision pass that was slotted past David de Gea in the 11th minute.

Spain's easy-on-the-eye style began to pick holes in England as the likes of Isco, Alcantara and Saul Niguez began to pin back the hosts.

The US Trade Representative's office received almost 6,000 comments and held seven days of public hearings on the proposed levies. An announcement on the tariffs is expected as early as Friday.

England were chasing shadows and when Kieran Trippier dived in to foul Marcos Alonso in the 32nd minute, the resulting free kick by Alcantara caught the home defence napping as Rodrigo guided the ball home at the near post.

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.

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

A poor Ramos clearance was challenged in the air by Welbeck, who swept home as De Gea dropped the ball, only to have his celebration cut short.

England reached the semifinals in Russian Federation, but lost to Croatia and then fell to Belgium in the third-place game.
