UEFA Nations League

Spain 2 - England 3

Spain suffered their first defeat in 28 games when they lost 2-3 to England on Monday, and their place in next summer’s final is now in the balance. Despite dominating the early play, Luis Enrique’s side found themselves behind when Rashford set up Sterling on a quick counter attack on the quarter hour mark. And by half time the hosts were three down, Rashford and Sterling adding two more from Kane assists. Paco Alcácer headed one back from Asensio’s corner just a minute or so after coming on as a substitute, but it was not until the seventh and final minute of time added on that Sergio Ramos connected with a Ceballos centre to head in a second. Spain now have to beat World Cup runners up Croatia next month to be sure of reaching the finals. (15.10.18)
