England hands Spain its first home loss in 15 years

Gomez will be handed a chance to impress in the absence of John Stones

Sterling ended his three year run without an global goal with a sublime goal in the 16th minute.

Captain Sergio Ramos got a second for Spain with a diving header in the eighth minute of added time with the last action of the match, leaving his side tasting their first defeat over 90 minutes since they were beaten 2-0 by Italy in Euro 2016.

"Every coach has their own method", Luis Enrique said in a postgame news conference when asked what he said to his players at the interval.

Spain lead the group with six points after three games while England are second on four, leaving Croatia bottom with one point although the World Cup runners-up have a game in hand.

At half-time in tonight's game against Spain, England fans were searching - legitimately, perhaps - for the last time their team had played this well in a competitive fixture. Only the group victor moves on.

Spain started well but its high defensive line struggled against the speed of England's young forwards. We have the ability up top to score goals as well.

Raheem Sterling scored his first goals for England since October 2015 vs Estonia - 1102 days ago. We had to get passes out of the Spain press spot on.

Rashford added to the lead in the 30th after a ideal through ball by Kane, entering the area and finishing with a shot from near the penalty spot. The quality of the decision making, passing, finishing was top.

Spain hit back with a header by substitute Paco Alcacer just before the hour and were nearly gifted another goal after an error from Jordan Pickford although the keeper managed to tackle Rodrigo Moreno, sparking fierce penalty appeals from the hosts.
