Southgate vows to stick to principles despite Spain defeat

Harry Kane will captain England at Wembley

However, England's lead didn't last long.

"Winning like this on this stage will do us a lot of good and we've started in the best way possible but in football the only thing that matters is the present". They are getting better, but there is still plenty of work to do.

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.

"This was a ideal night, the team picked up a huge victory and we saw a very impressive Spain side", said Saul.

When are you going to be back on form Harry! They had dropped down the ranking due to poor results and the coach has the aim of bringing them back up again with the UEFA Nations League a good test.

The Bayern Munich man's passing was so exemplary that it was fitting both goals came from his assists.

England's Luke Shaw is carried off the pitch on a stretcher on Saturday night.

Danes agree truce ahead of Wales game
Quarreling over commercial rights for players, such issues will be put to one side until Denmark's matches against Wales . There is more at stake and I assume they send the national team that usually plays and that they will sort it out.

England reached their first World Cup semi-final in three decades in Russian Federation, before losing 2-1 to Croatia.

In their first game since reaching the semi-finals in Russia, England were denied a point when Makkelie awarded a foul in favour of Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea for minimal contact with Danny Welbeck.

To be fair to the hosts they did start and end the game on top, and the opening goal came via the sort of incisive passing move that not so long ago looked way beyond an England side.

Rashford has failed to nail down a starting spot at Manchester United under Mourinho. England's first-half first-choice line-up had been comprehensively outplayed and trailed 2-0 at the break.

(AAP)England's Luke Shaw goes down after colliding with Spain's Dani Carvajal.

The Spaniards, who showed that, despite their World Cup problems, they are still a technically brilliant side, went ahead when Rodrigo was allowed to slip the ball into the net from a set-piece without actually being challenged.

The hosts took the lead in the first half through Shaw's United team-mate Marcus Rashford, but England were pegged back nearly immediately by Saul. Spain were lucky to come away with a win as De Gea fell on Danny Welbeck as he collected a mishit clearance and ended up dropping the ball to give the Arsenal striker a tap-in, but it was ruled out in what was a soft decision.
