Aspas impressed as Spain beat England 2-1 at Wembley in League A Group 4 on Sunday (AEST).

England lost a competitive Wembley global for the first time in more than a decade last night but remained convinced they were denied a legitimate equaliser six minutes into stoppage time against Spain, with England captain Harry Kane saying that Dutch referee Danny Makkelie had "bottled it".

Welbeck's disallowed strike came deep into nine minutes of stoppage time, most of which was amassed as Luke Shaw received treatment after a nasty clash of heads with Dani Carvajal at the start of the second half.

Spain were the better team in Enrique's first game in charge and this had been another education - the 11th match under Southgate against opponents in Fifa's top 20 which has not been won in normal time, with complaints over a refereeing oversight merely masking reality.

England boss Gareth Southgate refuses to commit his future to the Three Lions beyond Euro 2020.

The Tottenham striker scored six goals at the World Cup in Russian Federation last summer as England reached the semi-finals, but Kane flagged as the tournament wore on and has now not netted in his last four internationals.

Cowboys ‘only willing’ to trade third-round pick for Seahawks’ Earl Thomas
In Thomas' absence, the Seahawks have been preparing to start 2017 fourth-round pick Tedric Thompson at free safety. Thomas has since reported to the Seahawks, but he still doesn't appear to be thrilled with his situation.

The hosts took the lead in the first half through Shaw's United team-mate Marcus Rashford, but England were pegged back nearly immediately by Saul.

After struggling last season to convince Jose Mourinho he was worth a place in the team, he has started the current campaign in impressive fashion and his contribution on Saturday before his injury will have impressed Southgate. "And I'm not sure he was developed, I think he was a effect of a unique talent.capable and willing to have the ball against any opposition".

"It was a really tough game", said Southgate.

Southgate said: "Harry will not play". They're still not an incredibly free-flowing team and this friendly has all the hallmarks of being a tight, cagey affair decided by one or two individual moments. "There's a lot of stuff we can learn from but I think we can hold our heads up high".

"I'm hoping to look after the players and give them a bit of what they need and I know we'll get a good performance because whenever we have changed the team in recent months the level of performance has always remained the same". The priority is developing the England team. "We probably created the better chances throughout the game".
