United defender Shaw injured on England duty

United defender Shaw injured on England duty”

In a message on Twitter, he wrote: "Thank you for all the love and support I am doing fine and am in the best hands".

On this occasion at Wembley it wasn't to be however, as Saul and Rodrigo cancelled out Marcus Rashford's impressive early opening goal to win the opening match of their Nations League Group A clash for Spain.

Despite the joy at reaching the last four in Russia, England have now lost three consecutive games for the first time in 30 years.

"We are under no illusion that Spain were the better team for long periods".

"Their retention of the ball was top class".

"That balance with the left footer for us, with him and Danny (Rose), was an advantage in several situations".

"We aren't able to do that when teams press high against us yet".

Playing bravely out from the back rather than clearing long, England worked the ball to Kane who found the marauding Shaw on the left and his precise pass was flawless for Rashford to slot past his Manchester United team mate David De Gea.

Shaw, who has had a hard recovery from a bad leg break three years against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League, and has often been singled out for criticism by Jose Mourinho, had played a key role in the game, which England lost 2-1.

Rashford should have levelled matters in the 81st minute after combining with Harry Kane, but the England forward could only fire straight at De Gea from close range.

"Danny stood there, De Gea went up, he caught the ball but as he went down he fell on Danny, no foul or anything, and the ball has dropped".

"I am especially happy about De Gea's performance", said Enrique. The Liverpool midfielder was left exposed in the middle of the park against a technically astute Spain midfield who completely overran him.

The second half got off to a sour start as Shaw had to be stretchered off after taking a knock to the head in a collision with Dani Carvajal.

Shaw left the field on a stretcher after more than five minutes of medical attention.
