England Take First Loss Following World Cup!

England’s World Cup high came crashing back down to earth after a 2-1 defeat at home to Spain in the UEFA Nations League.

Wembley was optimistic early on, inspired by an early Marcus Rashford goal provided for with a fantastic pass from Luke Shaw.

However, within minutes Saul Niguez equalised for the visitors following a typically Spanish spell of tidy passing.

The bad news continued for the Three Lions with Shaw being stretchered off with a pretty severe looking head injury, following a clash with Dani Carvajal.

Rodrigo made a bad night worse when he gave Spain the lead shortly after the 30-minute mark.

A Late Danny Welbeck goal was denied deep into injury time, as the referee made the dubious decision to suggest Welbeck had fouled Spanish stopper David De Gea.

Final Score: England 1 – 2 Spain.
