Sterling scores twice as England stun Spain

Sterling scores twice as England stun Spain

"If I was a player, I'd be getting wound up about it".

Spain could have been three up before England scored the first goal on 16 minutes.

First goal in three years for England.

Luis Enrique remained upbeat after his first loss as Spain coach, despite admitting he could have killed his players for their "awful" first-half performance in Monday's 3-2 UEFA Nations League defeat to England.

"Harry Kane, what a performance Harry Kane has had". It's a great challenge for us as a team.

However, with Spain grabbing a quick goal back early into the second-half, some of that composure began to slip.

"We're asking the players to be fearless and if we're asking that, I've got to embody that as a leader", he said. "We pushed them back after [half-time]". Spain are top after winning the corresponding fixture at Wembley last month, while Croatia are bottom of the group with one point.

Rashford missed two good chances against Croatia as England drew 0-0 against their World Cup semi-final opponents on Friday. It moved into a tie with Belgium for first place in Group 2.

Spain started well but its high defensive line struggled against the speed of England's young forwards. Spain totalled 25 attempts and 70 percent of possession, and blew it.

"There is nothing better than scoring in an England shirt".

"I haven't scored for a while for England so it was frustration, all the pressure, it all comes out in the celebration. Sometimes it works for you and sometimes it doesn't, but it's my position to score goals so I need to keep that going".

Kane controls before looking up and picking out Rashford, below, on the left-hand side.

"We knew today, the way that Spain press, you have to get the first couple of passes out of that press spot on".
