Manchester United's Luke Shaw stretchered off on England duty vs. Spain

England manager Gareth Southgate and striker Marcus Rashford

England manager Gareth Southgate is expected to look at the depth of his squad against Spain and Switzerland

The UEFA Nations League features a monster clash at Wembley Stadium on Saturday as World Cup semifinalist England welcomes Spain and new manager Luis Enrique. "We are building and that is all we can do, play against these teams".

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

Saul's lively performance had the Spanish media asking why he did not play a single minute at the World Cup despite being part of the squad, while forward Rodrigo, scorer of the winning goal, also gave the team a more direct feel. We both have the same objective and before judging someone I like to meet them for myself in person.

"They have a system in Spain that has produced some of the best midfield players in the world ever".

"It wouldn't have happened 20 years ago, because players were there just to play football and we knew where we stood". So these media tactics are not necessary; he will win the battle.

Ultimately, England is still lacking technically gifted midfielders with enough big-game experience, while Spain could deploy Saul, Isco and Thiago Alcantra.

Southgate also said it was "difficult to tell" if Shaw had lost consciousness on the pitch after the collision, adding: "We'll go through some tests".

"We hung in there and in the last 25 or 30 minutes we really came into the game, kept the ball a lot better and created some good chances and could well have got a draw out of it". I have no doubts that, by sending a message to a United player, he was not just simply exhibiting good sportsmanship.

Spain threatened to stretch their lead but were forced to hang on in the closing stages as England finished strongly with Rashford going close and substitute Danny Welbeck having a goal disallowed deep into stoppage time.

"It was a great tournament for us, but for the gaffer as well and he had a lot of good memories from that".
