Carragher, Redknapp name three England players who tore Spain apart

  • Sancho made an eye-catching cameo from the bench against Croatia on his England debut

Below is our breakdown of the game.

However, with English football in such a good place at the moment, fans are already looking forward to the next time Gareth Southgate's side will take to the field.

Spain tried to mount a comeback in the second half with Paco Alcacer and Sergio Ramos getting on the scoresheet but the Three Lions held on.

Substitutes: Morata (6), Alcácer (8), Ceballos (6.5).

Two of England's three goals owed a lot to long passes from Pickford that carried a lot of luck as well.

Robbie Savage praised Harry Kane's exquisite assist for England's second goal in their win over Spain. And he's sure to prompt consideration for a starting role very soon.

"But it was not our best night, that's clear". Unlike their showing against Croatia last week, Southgate's troops appeared very confident and moved the ball with goal.


England took the lead through a lightning quick break involving Kane, Sterling and Rashford, and the three forwards had their footprints all over the three goals which led to the home fans booing their team off the pitch at the interval.

Sterling ended his three-year scoring drought with England with goals on each side of Rashford's strike before the break, leading England to its first win in Spain since 1987.

The Real Madrid defender lamented "gifting the first half [to England] with mistakes which we were made to pay with by goals". Croatia, with a game in hand, have one point. The reality of course as well is that in Russia, England lost to Belgium (twice), lost to Croatia, got a lucky win against Tunisia and hammered a hopeless Panama team, their only really convincing win against a decent team was Sweden, relying on hanging on against Colombia before edging it on penalties.

Enrique will be unhappy with the result but it's likely he'll be pleased with the attitude he saw in the second half.

"Uncoordinated pressure" is the first note scribbled down as England scored three in the first half.

"People have chosen to analyse the summer as they see fit".
