Sterling and Rashford goals sink Spain in Seville

Three Lions roar in Betis

Gareth Southgate's young England side further enhanced their growing reputation with a 2-3 Nations League win over Spain last night. 

Two goals from Raheem Sterling, either side of a composed finish from Marcus Rashford, put the Three Lions three goals to the good at half-time and despite second-half goals from Paco Alcacer and Sergio Ramos, Southgate's young guns secured an impressive result. 

To a man, England performed admirably; their three goals coming courtesy of clinical counter-attacking play that tore through Luis Enrique's shell-shocked Spanish team - who suffered their first defeat at home in 39 matches (their previous defeat v Greece in June 2003). 

The victory was also England's first in Spain since February 1987. 

Sterling's goals showed that he is capable of taking his club form with Manchester City onto the international stage, while the energy and fearlessness of Rashford symbolises this new-look England under Southgate. 



Rashford, in fact, has played more England games than any player since Southgate took charge of his first game, versus Malta, back in October 2016. 

In total, the Man United forward has scored 6 goals for his country in 29 appearances - four of his half dozen coming in games where he has stayed on the pitch for 90+ minutes. 

England's next Nations League Group 4 encounter is scheduled for next month, when they will face Croatia at Wembley
