UEFA Nations League: England 1-1 Spain

May JohnsonSep 10, 2018

NAIJ.com earlier reported that Manchester United defender, Luke Shaw, was forced off the pitch on a stretcher during England's UEFA Nations League opener against Spain at Wembley stadium.

The Football Association (FA) is reportedly keen to retain Southgate for the 2022 World Cup after the 48-year-old guided England to the semi-finals in Russian Federation.

England have conceded six goals in their last three games in all competitions and Gareth Southgate will feel Spain were allowed back into the contest far too easily, particularly after Harry Maguire played Rodrigo onside for their second.

But Spain, featuring only five of the players that started their last-16 World Cup penalty shootout defeat by Russian Federation, stormed back before halftime through Saul Niguez and Rodrigo. He's scored a goal and was in the penalty box more.

The Manchester United fullback took to twitter to thank all those who showed support and concern while he was still unconscious, saying, "Thank you for all the love and support".

Spain's easy-on-the-eye style began to pick holes in England as the likes of Isco, Alcantara and Saul Niguez took charge.

Serena Williams advances to US Open final
Keys, who is also an Australian and French Open semifinalist, will face Japanese sensation Naomi Osaka for a spot in the decider. Prior to this meeting, though, it is the first semi-final, between Serena Williams and Anastasia Sevastova, starting at midnight.

But the 20-year-old wasted two glorious chances to complete a hat-trick in the second half, a header and a shot saved by United team-mate David de Gea.

Luke Shaw, making his first worldwide start in three years, was taken off on a stretcher wearing a neck brace and oxygen mask early in the second half after a clash with Dani Carvajal, and the hosts failed to mount a comeback in his absence. Danny Rose came on to replace him.

He was fortunate though when he dropped the ball under pressure from Welbeck in stoppage time and the Arsenal man rolled home only to have his celebrations cut short.

Southgate is, sensibly, resisting the calls but is aware of the reality check of England losing to Spain. We have two of the world's best teams in our group.

"But I thought Gomez's defending was exceptional".

Tottenham full-back Kieran Trippier said there was no reason for alarm despite the defeat, which follows losses to Croatia in the last four in Russian Federation and to Belgium in the third-place play-off.
