PLAYER RATINGS: England 1-2 Spain – Three Lions beaten in Nations League opener

England have begun their Nations League campaign with a defeat to Spain this evening.

The Three Lions went ahead after Luke Shaw set up Marcus Rashford.

However the lead was short lived after Spain equalised almost instantly through Saul.

20 minutes later, Rodrigo put the visitors in front.

The scoreline stayed at 2-1 until Danny Welbeck looked to have made it 2-2 but the goal was ruled out for a foul on De Gea.

There was 10 minutes of injury time as Luke Shaw was carried off on a stretcher early in the second half after knocking himself out.
