Shaw to report back to Manchester United's medical team on Monday

England manager Gareth Southgate and striker Marcus Rashford

Gareth Southgate gave a start to Marcus Rashford, a player now struggling to make his mark with Manchester United this season.

England defender Luke Shaw alleviated concerns about his health after receiving lengthy treatment on the field following a collision during a game against Spain on Sunday morning (NZ time).

The 20-year-old scored England's opener from Luke Shaw's cross after 11 minutes but Gareth Southgate's side were beaten following goals from Saul and Rodrigo.

"It was a great tournament for us, but for the gaffer as well and he had a lot of good memories from that".

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.

Spain came from behind to inflict a first competitive home defeat on England since November 2007, ending a run of 24 games unbeaten in all competitions.

Spain's Saul Niguez celebrates scoring their first goal.

Southgate said he was unsure whether his side could close the gap to the top teams before the next European Championship, in which the semi-finals and final will be played at Wembley.

Marcus Rashford gave England the ideal start with an 11th-minute strike from Luke Shaw's pass but Spain responded with an nearly instant equaliser thanks to Saul Niguez's low finish.

Southgate is, sensibly, resisting the calls but is aware of the reality check of England losing to Spain.

"But I've got to give the players enormous credit because it was a game where we could've folded and disappeared but we didn't".

"It takes time. We've come a long way in a short space of time and today was as tough a test as you could have against a team that presses like that and are so good in possession". As the game wore out we started to work that out and I think Eric (Dier) provided some stability for us.
