England must not panic after Spain defeat, says Trippier

Justin GreeneSep 11, 2018

England had not lost three games in a row in 30 years until Saturday, although how many times had they played the World Cup runners-up (Croatia), third place (Belgium) and a side in the world's top ten (Spain) in a row?

'He may have mistakes like everybody else, but we have one of the best in the world.

"We knew it was going to be a hard game, these are the teams we want to play against".

"They are a top, top side and I think for spells kept the ball incredibly well, pressed us and we didn't keep the ball in the early part of the game well enough".

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.

"I think it's clear for everybody to see that it should have been a goal".

Kieran Trippier insists England are not concerned by their recent run of defeats as they focus on continuing to build their team.

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

The only one in my lifetime is Paul Gascoigne and I'm not sure he was developed, I think he was a effect of a unique talent, Southgate, 48, said of his former team-mate whose final England cap came in 1998.

"We'll go through some tests". At moments we compete and we look like being able to create chances.

"He always finds the best escape, the best pass out."Even if he doesn't provide the assist, he comes up with the pass that will help a player in attack to be found in space".

Southgate, who is emerging as one of the most likeable managers in world football; who treats the media with respect and does not bombard journalists with inane cliches as if they were fools, has already started to leave his mark on the national team. "I thought about it a lot in the summer, but I do not think we should talk about it anymore because it doesn't matter", he told a news conference before a clash with Croatia in his hometown of Elche on Tuesday.

Just 120 seconds after falling behind the visitors drew level through a crisp finish from Saul after Shaw had been guilty of diving in on Dani Carvajaj as the right-back scampered down the wing.

Kane, however, was not humbled by the gulf in class as the England striker raged at Dutch referee Danny Makkelie for ruling out a seemingly fine goal from Welbeck.
