Fears for Shaw after injury in England v Spain

Fears for Shaw after injury in England v Spain

The UEFA Nations League features a monster clash at Wembley Stadium on Saturday as World Cup semifinalist England welcomes Spain and new manager Luis Enrique.

Rodrigo was wide with a speculative effort on 22 minutes before a well-worked England free-kick almost paid dividends, but Harry Kane was crowded out as he set to shoot after Maguire's header across goal from Shaw's lofted delivery. Falling forward, Shaw's head appeared to strike the turf.

Medical staff tended to the motionless full-back for several minutes, administering oxygen and covering his eyes before carefully placing him on a stretcher.

Spurs are very happy with their first-choice left back, Ben Davies, but doubts remain about the future of their other option for that position - Danny Rose. In the last 25 minutes we came into the game and could have got a draw.

"It was a double impact. I'm a fighter so I will be back soon!"

"He's sat up in the dressing room, talking and seems fairly comfortable", the Three Lions boss said. "We'll have to assess him a little bit more overnight and tomorrow, but that's definitely a good sign".

"It's hard to tell whether he was unconscious".

"We'll go through some test". It was a nasty fall and collision. It was hard but we had good spells in the game and we probably created the better chances.

He has established himself as first-choice left-back at Manchester United this season, playing every minute of the club's opening four Premier League fixtures.

This season, he has been one of the few players consistently earning plaudits in an up and down start for the Red Devils.

Gareth Southgate handed starts to Marcus Rashford in the attack as Raheem Sterling missed out through injury, while there was also a start for defenders Luke Shaw and Joe Gomez.

"We tried to press and play with high intensity".
