Southgate opens up on Shaw and Rashford injuries

Gareth Southgate and Harry Kane

"We know there's a distance to go until the very top teams". He has named an otherwise youthful squad including three debutantes as he looks to get off to a winning start.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho slipped over a concrete and fell at the Wembley before England's Nations League defeat to Spain.

Luke Shaw's first England start for three years was ended early by a nasty head injury after a collision with Spain's Dani Carvajal.

England's joy was short-lived as La Roja hit back two minutes later, as Rodrigo surged into the box before picking out Saul Niguez, who sent a fine low strike past Jordan Pickford.

The impact was audible from the stands and led to him leaving on a stretcher wearing an oxygen mask and a neck brace after lengthy treatment.

Before the game, England coach Gareth Southgate had warned that his team still had much to prove on the worldwide stage, claiming that the country's winning record against world football's elite has been "non-existent" since the World Cup success in 1966.

Manchester United forward, Marcus Rashford had put the home side in front after just 11 minutes but goals from Saul and Rodrigo before half-time sealed the win for Luis Enrique's side.

Meanwhile, England have called up Leicester City duo Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray for Tuesday's friendly against Switzerland at the King Power Stadium, the FA said on Sunday.

Shaw was replaced by Danny Rose after the team of physios had carried him off the pitch.

With key Euro 2020 games, including both semi-finals and the final, being played at Wembley, Southgate and his men will see it as a big opportunity to do well.

That clash gets underway from Wembley at 7:45pm on Tuesday evening in the final outing of the latest worldwide break.

"I think at the moment we have to stick with the plan, stick with what we're doing and just get better at doing it".
