Enrique slams Spain's first-half display against England

Enrique slams Spain's first-half display against England

We said before the show it's like watching a different player.

Sterling's goals followed 27 scoreless caps, with the Manchester City forward doubling his overall tally for the national team with those first-half rewards.

Spain coach Luis Enrique resisted the temptation to criticise his players after their "awful" first-half display as they went down 3-2 to England in the Nations League yesterday for their first home loss in a competitive game for 15 years.

"But it was not our best night, that's clear".

First, word from the man himself.

We've selected seven of the best since 2000 - have a go at ranking them. You run the risk of the losing ball, but when we got out we were a huge threat on the counter-attack. "We did a lot of things well to get back into the game".

It also represents the first loss that coach Luis Enrique has suffered since taking charge of La Roja after the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation. Ramos' last-minute goal also was a header.

"Harry Kane, what a performance Harry Kane has had".

Meanwhile, more leading business figures say they will not attend a major investment conference in Riyadh later this month. The chief executive of JPMorgan Chase & Co., Jamie Dimon, had been a featured speaker at the conference in Riyadh.

"This was a player performing without hesitation, and a side performing without doubt". Southgate has got his tactics and formation so right, and it led to some laser-accurate lightning moves, especially with the first goal. The quality of the decision making, passing, finishing was top.

Journalist Xavier Bosch claims that Alcacer would still not play at Barcelona despite his fine recent form, while deputy director Josep M. Artells analysed the players and why they did not connect as they should on the field, with Kane again the English focus with a "masterly" performance.

Liverpool legends Carragher and Redknapp were stunned by the displays of the goalscorers and main striker Harry Kane, who played a key role in each of the goals.

As time has gone on though, it has become harder and harder to watch them, far too many meaningless matches and the hype is ridiculous considering how average and boring they are for most of the time.

Paco Alcacer came on in the second half to cut England's lead down and Sergio Ramos popped up with another at the death, but that would be all the England defence would allow as they registered a huge victory over one of the best worldwide opponents they've had to face in recent times.

"Even Lineker will admit that Sterling needs to bring this level on a more consistent basis, but two goals against Spain might very well be the catalyst".

And that rounds off our Sterling special!
