Direct Spain have new identity after Luis Enrique makeover

Direct Spain have new identity after Luis Enrique makeover

Both sides fielded solid XIs for the match as Luis Enrique oversaw his first game in charge of La Roja after being hired to replace interim boss Fernando Hierro, who managed the team at the 2018 World Cup following the sacking of Julen Lopetegui. "That focus will come on me and I'm not concerned about it".

He has scored 19 goals in his 31 caps to date for the Three Lions but failed to score in the 2-1 Nations League defeat to Spain on Saturday.

After losing to Croatia in the semi-finals in Russia, England were also beaten by Belgium in the third-place playoff.

A big feature of England's best run at a World Cup for 28 years was how their three-man backline, and Harry Maguire in particular, were able to bring the ball out of defence.

"Spain came from behind to win against England and did so by showing the same personality as their coach".

Luis Enrique also defended De Gea after he was criticised for his performances at the World Cup and claims the goalkeeper is the best in the world.

"Instead we got players comfortable on the ball who could take 50 touches".

Theranos, Elizabeth Holmes' startup, is shutting down for good
As part of the settlement, Ms Holmes had to return millions of shares to the privately held company and pay a $500,000 fine. But that unraveled spectacularly under the scrutiny of Wall Street Journal investigative reporter John Carreyrou.

England lost full-back Luke Shaw early in the second half when he collided with Spain's Dani Carvajal, but they rallied late in the second-half and nearly equalised when Kane put Rashford through for a shot that De Gea blocked with his legs.

Rashford would have had a second ten minutes before the break but for a stunning reaction save from his Manchester United team-mate De Gea.

Shaw, making his first England start since September 2015, received treatment on the pitch for nearly seven minutes, with plenty of medical officers checking on his condition after he hit his head.

They were allowed to stay in their rooms and rest until they felt like.

The England captain was livid after Danny Welbeck saw his 97th-minute strike chalked off for a foul.

When asked what he thought about the decision, Luis Enrique replied: 'I couldn't see, it was hard, David De Gea told me he was fouled.
