Gareth Southgate assesses England's defeat to Spain

Shaw, who started his first match for England since March 2017, suffered a blow to his head as he landed awkwardly after a challenge against Spain's Dani Carvajal, which saw him substituted after 57 minutes.

The incident, in which Shaw's head appeared to clash with Carvajal's arm, appeared to be a nasty one, marring England's first ever Nations League tie. "Before I left, the missus said, "Oh, you are back off on your boys" holiday again.' And that is what it kind of feels like".

Play had to be stopped for around 10 minutes and he was treated by 10 medical staff before being carried from the field on a stretcher, in a neck brace and being given oxygen.

The 23-year-old was having an impressive game, providing an excellent assist for Marcus Rashford to open the scoring at Wembley on Saturday. An FA spokesperson confirmed after the match that Shaw was "fine and walking and talking in the dressing room".

"We'll have to assess him a bit more overnight and tomorrow".

On Shaw's overall display as he won a first worldwide cap for 18 months, the England manager added: "It's a great contribution for the goal and it's a big thing".

England manager, Gareth Southgate seemed reasonably happy with Shaw's condition immediately after the game.

Spain were fluid and fluent throughout their first match under Luis Enrique and, after their shock World Cup last-16 exit to hosts Russian Federation ended a tumultuous campaign, will go confidently into their next game against Croatia, though a late foul by substitute Danny Welbeck meant they will not do so on the back of a draw.

And after the match, Southgate admitted that Rashford will face a fitness test on Sunday and is considered a doubt for Tuesday's friendly against Switzerland.

It was not long before Spain equalised however through Saul Ñiguez, while Rodrigo Moreno's finish gave the visitors the lead midway through the first half.
