Comeback Wembley win gives Luis Enrique the perfect start
  • Spain came from behind to beat England at Wembley on Saturday

Luis Enrique's reign as Spain coach got off to the perfect start as his side came from behind to beat England at Wembley on Saturday.

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford gave England the lead after just ten minutes when he converted Luke Shaw's low cross from the left at the far post. However, just two minutes later, Saúl volleyed home Rodrigo's cutback to the near post to restore parity.

Rodrigo himself then took advantage of some sleepy defending to tap home a Thiago freekick to give Spain a lead they never looked like losing.

England's best chance came deep in stoppage time when referee Danny Mekkelie controversially gave a foul in favour of David De Gea, who dropped the ball under pressure from Danny Welbeck who stabbed home the loose ball.
