Race to start Fabian Delph is a midfield option for Southgate

'Yeah 100 per cent that cost us, ' he told Sky Sports.

He set up United team-mate Marcus Rashford with a delicate through ball in a sweeping England move to open the scoring on 11 minutes.

However, the England fans had barely retaken their seats by the time Spain levelled two minutes later when Saul swept home Rodrigo's cross. The Arsenal forward recovered to put the loose ball into the Spanish net before Makkelie ruled that de Gea had been fouled by Welbeck.

"In the big moments you need the referee to stay strong, but unfortunately he has bottled it", said Kane, adding, "big moments you need a firm referee who doesn't, under the pressure, get wrong decisions, basically".

Tottenham star Kane did not look at his best, and quite a few fans have reminded the 25-year-old of this in their responses to the striker's post-match tweet. It was hard but we had good spells in the game and we probably created the better chances.

"We aren't able to do that when teams press high against us yet".

"I am especially happy about De Gea's performance", said Enrique, adding, "we have one of the best goalkeepers in the world, he's showed that for many years in the Premier League".

"We have to think about the whole match and I think we deserved to win".

"At times, with the way they kept the ball, it was hard for us".

"We are under no illusion that Spain were the better team for long periods". "I have to give the players credit".

Southgate confirmed that the left-back was conscious and talking in the changing room and will continue to be assessed.

"We are still finding our feet in playing out from the back". Today was a tough test in terms of pressing and a team who are so good in possession. We have to keep reviewing and looking at what we do. "We'll have to assess him a bit more overnight and tomorrow, but that's definitely a good sign".

Spain will face World Cup runners-up Croatia, the other team in the three-man Nations League group, on the same night.
