Tottenham's Harry Kane reacts to England defeat on Twitter

The left back, whose remarkable comeback from serious injury has been well documented recently, was felled after a collision with Dani Carvajal and was treated for around seven minutes on the pitch, before being taken off on a stretcher. But there's a level for us to go to and that's a really good challenge for us over the next couple of years.

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.

"He may have mistakes like everybody else, but we have one of the best in the world".

The game would end in defeat for England, who were deservedly beaten by their technically superior opponents.

Eric Dier is expected to come in for Jordan Henderson, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek likely to sit just off of Harry Kane amid doubts over Rashford's fitness.

"Thank you for all the love and support I am doing fine and am in the best hands", the Manchester United left-back tweeted.

"At the time they were thinking about flying me back and, if I had flown back, then I would have probably lost my leg because of the blood clots and stuff in the leg".

Rashford was also replaced in added time by Danny Welbeck, after signalling to the bench that he had picked up a knock.

Spain were fluid and fluent throughout their first match under Luis Enrique and, after their shock World Cup last-16 exit to hosts Russian Federation ended a tumultuous campaign, will go confidently into their next game against Croatia, though a late foul by substitute Danny Welbeck meant they will not do so on the back of a draw.

In another League A game - in Group 2 - Switzerland swept to a 6-0 victory over Iceland.

On Saturday, the Real Madrid defender was booed as Spain beat the Three Lions 2-1 at Wembley but he has pointed out that he was victim to unpleasant behaviour from fans following Los Blancos' third successive Champions League success.
