It was undoubtedly a landmark performance for Southgate's side, but where does it sit among standout England victories from the past 18 years?

Sergio Ramos played up to his villain role during Spain's defeat to England on Monday night in the UEFA Nations League.

After the break, Luis Enrique's side rallied and were lucky not to be awarded a penalty when Pickford pulled back Marco Asensio in the box, a challenge which could also have seen the Everton 'keeper sent off.

Spain lost a competitive home fixture for the first time since 2003 - ending a run of 38 matches without defeat - after being upstaged by World Cup semi-finalists England in Seville.

"They're a top opponent, one we've been preparing for". It's a shame we didn't get the second goal earlier because I'm sure the supporters would have scored the third.

It's no surprise for Blues fans - Raheem has been doing what he did last night for the best part of three years for City.

In the second half of the enthralling global clash, the Real Madrid captain seemed to to stamp on the Manchester City winger in the penalty area. The ball circulation improved, we pressed better, pushed them back into their area.


"I thought we played with huge courage", Southgate said.

"There were moments where we showed some real composure on the ball, from the goalkeeper right the way through the team".

"Of course, in the last 20 minutes, we had to face some pressure but you expect that to happen and we were pretty resilient".

"If you can get out of their initial press quickly, then we are a threat on the counter".

"We had as many minutes to score three goals as they had and the positive thing was the reaction of the team". As tight as the result was, it has sparked social media into a frenzy, with many football fans taking to Twitter to express their views.

Sterling got on the board again from close range after Kane's set-up in a move which started with a nice pass by Ross Barkley over the top of the Spanish defenders.
