In a clip that is doing the rounds, "Lucho" gave the La Roja skipper a special greeting when they linked up for the first time ahead of UEFA Nations League games against England and Croatia.

Three days later, in Seville, it will be a rematch with the Spain team who reminded us in their 2-1 win at Wembley that England still have a lot to learn when it comes to looking after a football.

Luis Enrique has revealed that David De Gea believed he was fouled for Danny Welbeck's disallowed goal in Spain's victory over England on Saturday evening.

There was some relief for England, though, as left-back Luke Shaw confirmed he is fine after being stretchered off early in the second half with a nasty head injury.

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

The 27-year-old shot-stopper had come in for criticism back in his homeland for a poor showing at the 2018 World Cup, where he made just one save from seven shots on target and was beaten six times.

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

"Great contribution for the goal".

Kuo also mentioned battery size for the 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Plus which would be a 2 cell one, between 3000 to 3400 mAh in size. Both phones are also expected to continue with the Face ID feature on the front as well as dual-rear cameras at the back.

Having started his first game back in the English team superbly, the Manchester United full-back played an exquisite pass into his club-mate Marcus Rashford for England's opener.

The home fans were still buzzing about the opener when Spain levelled two minutes later after a flowing move of their own - Saul Niguez shooting past Jordan Pickford after Thiago Alcantara's neat cut back.

De Gea produced an acrobatic save to deny Rashford a second goal shortly afterwards but Spain ended the half on top. John Stones, Danny Rose, Jordan Henderson, Eric Dier and Jesse Lingard have all gone on to become key figures under Southgate since facing Spain the last time around, though, and the new-look England came within a whisker of reaching the World Cup final for the first time since 1966 in Russian Federation.

England ramped up the pressure near the end and had a number of good opportunities such as Rashford's 1v1 with De Gea.

Southgate said the goal should have stood but admitted his side had struggled to counter Spain's passing game. We have two of the world's best teams in our group.

"We've got to go through those games".

"What I have to focus on is improving the team as much as I can". England have never lost more than three matches in a row throughout 146 years of worldwide football.
