       Harry Kane feels he was not at his best in Russia despite winning Golden Boot

Rodrigo then put Spain in the lead in the 32nd minute, cleverly redirecting an inswinging Thiago free kick at the near post to beat Jordan Pickford in the England goal.

"We know there is a distance to go to the very top teams", said Southgate.

"We have to accept Spain were better than us for long periods of the game", said Southgate. But there's a level for us to go to and that's a really good challenge for us over the next couple of years.

"What I have to focus on is improving the team as much as I can. But it is a supreme test".

"To win a Golden Boot at the World Cup is an exciting thing".

England and Spain also face World Cup runners-up Croatia in League A Group 4 of the UEFA's new tournament created to add spice to the worldwide calendar.

Thanks to the high pressing of Spain at Wembley these forays forward were seriously curtailed with both time and space being at a premium.

The commercial has polarized opinion, with Trump among those critical of Nike for giving Kaepernick a public platform. The quarterback claims NFL team owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his protests.

Marcus Rashford's opener gave England a bright start but they struggled to match Spain until the last 20 minutes, when they probed for an equaliser. He also brought such a tempo to proceedings that Spain looked a big upgrade on the ponderous outfit that had performed so poorly at the World Cup.

The defeat is England's first in a competitive fixture at Wembley since they lost a Euro 2008 qualifier to Croatia in November 2007, a run stretching back 24 games - and is Southgate's first home defeat as manager.

It started with a fearless defensive header from Luke Shaw inside his own penalty area.

"What we did to promote comfort on the ball was start to get players who are comfortable on the ball".

But there were clear chances for Rashford, playing higher up the pitch, and twice denied by David De Gea, while Southgate will have been pleased to bring back Joe Gomez and with the way that, once he introduced Eric Dier in the second half, Spain were caused more problems.

Welbeck tucked the ball away from close range after David De Gea, who had risen to catch the ball, fell on Welbeck and dropped it.

Shaw created England's goal in their 2-1 defeat but was injured in an accidental clash with Dani Carvajal early in the second half - leading to a seven-minute stoppage as he was treated by several medics.
