Spain outperform England in Nations League fixture

  • Joe Gomez- Joe Gomez poised to start against Spain in England's three-man defence

Gareth Southgate pledged to stick to his principles after Spain delivered an uncomfortable reality check at Wembley but admitted he was unsure whether England had time to become genuine Euro 2020 challengers.

The Spaniard put Mohamed Salah out of the Champions League final in May with a heavy challenge, sending Liverpool fans into a fit of rage so intense they actually put together a petition for the game to be replayed.

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

But if the grand plan at the FA is the next World Cup in Qatar, more so than a European Championship that will conclude at Wembley in two years, it can not be said with any great certainty that Southgate will be the man entrusted with the task of taking England there. "He will return to Manchester United on Monday", the FA said.

"It was a really tough game", said Southgate.




Shaw, 23, was winning his eighth cap for his country, and the first since March 2017 after being recalled following a strong start to the season with United.

"But I've got to give the players enormous credit because it was a game where we could've folded and disappeared but we didn't".

"He knows we have real belief in him".

"That's what I want, to reduce the space and press a lot and against a team with three defenders it was very hard", Luis Enrique said. He is one of the best goalkeepers in the world and has proven it in the Premier League week in, week out. He remains someone with a detailed knowledge and understanding of English players across the senior and junior ranks, a detailed knowledge and understanding of the FA too, and a coach with an ambitious vision for England as a major global force. 'And in the end it's not something that's right to discuss publicly. We know there's a distance to go until we are with the very top teams.

It could be that Southgate is presiding over a power shift in the engine room, with Dier likely to start in Tuesday night's friendly clash with Switzerland.
