They thought they had in stoppage time, when Danny Welbeck clipped it in after David de Gea's spill, but a weird decision from a referee out of his depth saw it ruled out.

In their first game since reaching the semi-finals in Russia, England were denied a point when Makkelie awarded a foul in favour of Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea for minimal contact with Danny Welbeck.

"We have lots of defensive midfield players and lots of layers who can dribble, but no one in between", Barnes told Sky Sports News.

Then, though, came a stirring climax that Danny Welbeck thought he had capped with a dramatic 97th-minute equaliser when finishing from an acute angle after De Gea had dropped the ball.

"Big moments you need a firm referee who don't, under the pressure, get wrong decisions, basically".

Shaw helped put England in front when he assisted Marcus Rashford's strike, but Spain came roaring back to win the game 2-1.

England have struggled to dominate possession against the world's top sides and manager Gareth Southgate recently said the only "true creative force for England in the last 50 years" was Paul Gascoigne.

"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".

"We're under no illusions that Spain were the better team for long periods of that but they are brilliant at what they do and we are in the early stages of what we're trying to do". We both have the same objective and before judging someone I like to meet them for myself in person.
