England's Luke Shaw conscious after sickening head injury against Spain

Luke Shaw deserves all the praise in the world – but should he be in the England squad

Luke Shaw deserves all the praise in the world – but should he be in the England squad

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.

The second half was overshadowed by a nasty-looking injury sustained by England left back Luke Shaw who needed lengthy treatment after a clash of heads.

More time on the sideline would be a cruel blow for the Manchester United star who provided a terrific assist for club team-mate Marcus Rashford - who also picked up an injury - for the opening goal.

Saul Niguez equalised after 13 minutes and Rodrigo put the visitors ahead in the 32nd minute with a brilliant deft finish at the near post.

There was an expectation in the 81,000 crowd as the game kicked off following the presentation of the World Cup Golden Boot trophy to Harry Kane by England coach Gareth Southgate.

Sasse said he backed many of President Trump's decisions when it comes to judicial nominations and regulatory changes. But he's remained clear of the president's wrath unlike other lawmaker critics of Trump, such as Senator Jeff Flake.

Following a disappointing World Cup campaign, Luis Enrique was appointed to take the reins at the Spanish national team.

"We knew it was going to be a hard game".

He was treated by more than 10 members of the medical team but was conscious and communicating in the dressing room. We have to go through those experiences, otherwise we would go into a finals tournament in two years' time and, if we were just playing qualifiers now against lower standard opposition, we might have a perception of where we are, which would be false.

"We know in the back of our minds that there is a lot of hard work to do from now until the Euros to first get there and then hopefully go even further than we did at the World Cup", Kane said.

The Spurs marksman also endured a quiet end to the World Cup on a personal level, failing to score against Colombia or Croatia in the latter stages of the competition. 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. We created some good chances against Spain. In League C games, Finland beat Hungary 1-0 and Greece won in Estonia by the same score.
