Spain come from behind to beat England

The seven-minute delay due to treatment of Shaw's injury counted for nine minutes stoppage time and England will certainly feel robbed by the decision to disallow Danny Welbeck's late goal after he was deemed to have fouled his former United team-mate David De Gea as he challenged for the ball. "He'll stay with us overnight for further observation, with another update to come in the morning", the FA said in a statement.

Shaw tweeted to fans after the match: "Thank you for all the love and support I am doing fine and am in the best hands".

"I'm a fighter so I will be back soon". The familiar chants from the summer could be heard throughout the game as the Three Lions supporters let manager Gareth Southgate know "he's the one" and that "football is coming home again".

"He's sat up in the dressing room and talking and seems fairly comfortable", he said.

"We'll go through some test". It's obviously a nasty-looking fall and collision. "We won't take any chances with his health".

And both teams were on the scoresheet before the quarter-hour, with Marcus Rashford scoring from an inch-perfect Luke Shaw cross on the counter-attack and Saul smashing home a first-time shot in traffic from Rodrigo's cross to make it 1-1.

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. We've thrown him in after a few games of the season.

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

But Spain, featuring only five of the players that started their last-16 World Cup penalty shootout defeat by Russian Federation, stormed back before halftime through Saul Niguez and Rodrigo.
