Adjust Comment Print

For all of the distractions in Russia, Spain's multi-talented squad should have done much better, and Luis Enrique has inherited a group of world-class players who could easily win Euro 2020 in two years' time. "The team comes before anything else". We both have the same objective and before judging someone I like to meet them for myself in person.

Danny Rose came on for Shaw at left-back as the tempo of the match slowed immediately following the Manchester United player being carried off the field, with neither side fashioning any real chances in the following 15 minutes. There was that bit of luck, beating Tunisia in stoppage time and knocking out Colombia on penalties.

"That's what I want, to reduce the space and press a lot and against a team with three defenders it was very hard", Luis Enrique said.

Djokovic dismisses Del Potro to win U.S. Open
Djokovic was soon 3-1 up in the second set before Del Potro carved out his first break point of the match to level at 3-3. Djokovic sprinted into a 3-1 lead in the third set before a battling Del Potro clung on, hitting back for 3-3.

"It was a short break with no pre-season and everybody was back earlier than I am sure everybody would have expected for club matches, although that is entirely understandable". Now we can go on and improve. "I think after the next few months we will be very clear". "A lot of these guys have had zero minutes in the league, but the right thing is to give them game time".

Southgate's men got off to the flawless start here, with Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford finishing off an incisive move after 11 minutes.

Late substitute Danny Welbeck saw a last-gasp equaliser controversially chalked off as the referee deemed the Arsenal man had fouled Spain goalkeeper David de Gea before turning the ball home. Shaw's head crashed off the Spaniard's hip and then bounced off the turf, causing obvious concern around the stadium.
