Kane lashes out at concept of nationhood, Spain referee

Not only did the quality of his delivery take out two Spanish defenders but goalkeeper David De Gea did not know whether to come or stay and Rashford gleefully took advantage with a first-time finish.

Despite the joy at reaching the last four in Russia, England have now lost three consecutive games for the first time in 30 years.

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. "At moments we compete and we look like being able to create chances".

Gareth Southgate's side got their Nations League campaign off to a disappointing start as goals from Saul Niguez and Rodrigo helped overturn a 1-0 deficit following Marcus Rashford's opener.

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.

England captain Harry Kane has claimed that referee Danny Makkelie "bottled it" when he disallowed a late Danny Welbeck equaliser against Spain. "I've seen teams fold in similar circumstances".

"We tried to press and play with high intensity". He allowed the players the morning off and liberated them from having to wake up at any particular time for breakfast.

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

"He may be making mistakes like everyone else, but we have one of the best in the world, and I'm very calm with David".

"But we don't have a creative player like Andrea Pirlo".

"Danny stood there, De Gea went up, he caught the ball but as he went down he fell on Danny, no foul or anything, and the ball has dropped".

"They are a top, top side and I think for spells kept the ball incredibly well, pressed us and we didn't keep the ball in the early part of the game well enough".
