Sergio Ramos sends Luke Shaw 'get well soon' message after head injury

We still have plenty of hard work to do to match elite, says Kane

Shaw had earlier set up England's opening goal with a superb through ball to clubmate Marcus Rashford.

England's defeat was their first in 25 competitive fixtures at Wembley.

England were surprise World Cup semi-finalists in July, riding a wave of euphoria back home, but their 2-1 Nations League defeat on Saturday was their third consecutive loss.

Despite the disallowed goal, England will need to improve going into next month's match against World Cup finalists Croatia - a team whose technical and tactical nous is able to compete against any side in the world.

England teammates expressed relief about Shaw's injury, with manager Gareth Southgate equally relieved.

England responded in style and scored a goal of stunning quality in the 11th minute.

But the visitors to Wembley soon equalised as Saul swept home, before Rodrigo stole in ahead of Jordan Pickford to hand his side the lead.

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

Luke Shaw, making his first global 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 Welbeck's just stood there, the 'keeper's gone to catch it and fell on top of him and Danny's put it away and somehow the ref's given it as a foul".

The Portuguese coach was strolling into the famous stadium to take his position for the match when the incident happened.

With Shaw out, Danny Rose should start at left wing-back while Trent Alexander-Arnold could get a start on the opposite flank.

"I think we've got some players who can and have shown tonight they can perform at that level, and there's some that are still a work in progress", he said.

"He may have mistakes like everybody else, but we have one of the best in the world".
