Defeat gives England and Southgate a reality check

GETTY    
   Kane has played down claims of his special talent

Kane, who has started 61 games since the start of last season, is being rested as part of a calculated gamble on Southgate's part at a time when England face the possibility of losing four games in a row for the first time in their history.

England captain Harry Kane has claimed that referee Danny Makkelie "bottled it" when he disallowed a late Danny Welbeck equaliser against Spain.

And for Southgate there is not necessarily an obvious game-changing midfielder on the horizon as he attempts to live up to the natural hype of reaching a World Cup semi-finals back in the summer, even if youth coaches across the country are trying hard to produce them.

Luis Enrique has the task of seeing that Spain has a convincing victory over World Cup finalist Croatia in his first match as coach on home soil this Tuesday.

"So there's a lot of good individual positives for us and for me, as a collective, they gave everything to get back into the game and I have to commend them for that".

"Xavi and Iniesta are the history of our national team, they made us the best in the world", said Saul. "These are the teams we want to play against".

Having started his first game back in the English team superbly, the Manchester United full-back played an exquisite pass into his club-mate Marcus Rashford for England's opener.

"But this is one of those occasions where what we want to look at with our squad ties in with doing the right thing with the players for our long-term benefit. And I'm not sure he was developed, I think he was a effect of a unique talent.capable and willing to have the ball against any opposition".

China’s richest man Jack Ma to retire from Alibaba on his birthday
He is a cult figure in China's internet industry and has attracted a large following among entrepreneurs and in pop culture alike. Ma started Alibaba in 1999 in his apartment in the Chinese city of Hangzhou and is now among the richest people in the world.

England will be desperate to find attacking alternatives in the long term.

Goalkeeper Danijel Subasic and striker Mario Mandzukic both retired from global football after their exploits in Russian Federation, while centre-back pair Dejan Lovren and Domagoj Vida are both injured. "There aren't many English strikers playing", he said. We started bright and got the early goal and then to concede straight away after was disappointing.

Winning his first game in charge against England gives Luis Enrique a ideal start, and even with the recent retirements of Andres Iniesta, Gerard Pique and David Silva, he still has great quality to work with.

"But I can't rule out anybody because if people play well it would be foolish to ignore them".
