Spain reduced England in UEFA Nation League game with 2-1 win

England were reduced from their World Cup high by Spain. Gareth Southgate's men started well at Wembley, But Spain comfortably won the match as Saul Niguez and Rodrigo secured a 2-1 comeback win after Marcus Rashford had opened the scoring in their first-ever Nations League match.




But the defeat was overshadowed by a nasty-looking injury to Luke Shaw. Luke Shaw produced a world-class pass for Rashford's opener on his first international start since September 2015, just a week before the hideous injury that he revealed this week that it nearly cost him his leg.



But Luke Shaw assured return to England duty came to a shuddering halt minutes into second half, the left-back required lengthy treatment after colliding with Dani Carvajal and hitting the deck, eventually leaving the field on a stretcher and wearing an oxygen mask.




The Football Association said it is not as serious as it looked, but the shock naturally took the sting out of the second half. England pushed on in the closing stages but could not find an equaliser, with substitute Danny Welbeck seeing a goal ruled out deep in stoppage-time.
