A loss to Vladimir Petkovic's side would mean they have suffered four defeats in a row for the first time in their history, with the Spain reverse coming after back-to-back losses to Croatia and Belgium at the World Cup.

A big feature of England's best run at a World Cup for 28 years was how their three-man backline, and Harry Maguire in particular, were able to bring the ball out of defence.

Southgate admitted that England's attacking options were severely diminished in the absence of the Tottenham striker and he also acknowledged that, if his team could not end their current losing sequence, having lost three successive games for the first time since Euro '88, the goodwill generated by the team's performances in Russian Federation would quickly start to ebb away.

They ultimately fell short, but Southgate was brought in to pull England out of its global malaise, and he has succeeded.

The 31-year-old said he would return for England duty if Gareth Southgate has no other options.

The Tottenham striker scored six goals at the World Cup in Russian Federation last summer as England reached the semi-finals, but Kane flagged as the tournament wore on and has now not netted in his last four internationals.

Ironically, it turns out plaid shirt guy wasn't the only person who wasn't considered worthy of standing behind the president. However, the high schooler stood out because of his animated facial expressions, that ranged from bewildered to skeptical.

Spain's easy-on-the-eye style began to pick holes in England as the likes of Isco, Alcantara and Saul Niguez took charge.

A five-minute stoppage ensued as Shaw was carefully carried from the field on a stretcher and with an oxygen mask strapped around his face.

Coach Gareth Southgate lost Manchester United defender Luke Shaw to a head injury shortly after the interval and pressed hard for an equaliser as the game entered its final stages. But we can see there's a period of time for those players to come through. They're still not an incredibly free-flowing team and this friendly has all the hallmarks of being a tight, cagey affair decided by one or two individual moments.

"It was a good game, it was a real test against a team that keep the ball really well".

"We always want to win matches and we don't accept losing matches, but I can't make decisions just to get a win. I thought about it a lot in the summer, but I do not think we should talk about it anymore because it doesn't matter", he told a news conference before a clash with Croatia in his hometown of Elche on Tuesday.
