Joe Gomez’s fine form continues despite England’s Wembley defeat to Spain

However, England manager Gareth Southgate admitted his side weren't good enough as Spain bounced back from Marcus Rashford's opener to go ahead before half-time through Saul Niguez and Rodrigo.

Rodrigo Moreno then took advantage of poor marking at a free-kick to score the victor from close range after 32 minutes.

Spain returned to winning ways with their 2-1 victory over England on Saturday (Sep 8) after their disastrous time at the World Cup but the most striking element of their performance at Wembley was the new identity they are forming under coach Luis Enrique.

Despite the joy at reaching the last four in Russia, England have now lost three consecutive games for the first time in 30 years.

England's first global match since their run to the World Cup semi-final at the World Cup earlier this summer ended in defeat, with Gareth Southgate's young side slipping to a 2-1 loss to Spain tonight at Wembley.

"We have to accept Spain were better than us for long periods of the game", said Southgate.

We did it a couple of times but at the moment we're still finding our feet in playing out from those areas. "Of that type of player, they've produced more than any other team in the world". At the moment we have a different profile of player, we can't play the way that they want to play.

After the media, the anti-doping, the trip, it was a very late night.

"When you think about the whole match, we deserved to win".

"He may be making mistakes like everyone else, but we have one of the best in the world, and I'm very calm with David".

Luis Enrique knows all about taking on a talented team that has performed well below its level, having lifted Barcelona from their post-Pep Guardiola slump to become Champions League winners again, so managing Spain will not faze the 48-year-old.

Weighing up England's most talented players against the likes of Spain's Andres Iniesta, Xavi and David Silva, Southgate said: "The only one in my lifetime is Paul Gascoigne and I'm not sure he was developed, I think he was a outcome of a unique talent".
