However, the England fans had barely retaken their seats by the time Spain levelled two minutes later when Saul swept home Rodrigo's cross.

They will make wholesale changes for the friendly against Switzerland on Tuesday, but face a doubleheader next month away to Croatia and Spain in the Nations League.

Southgate's opposite number Luis Enrique, who was overseeing his first match in charge of Spain, admitted he hadn't been able to see the play from his vantage point.

"When you think about the whole match, we deserved to win".

"We tried to press and play with high intensity".

When England last faced Spain at Wembley in November 2016, during Southgate's four-game run as interim manager after Sam Allardyce's dismissal, it was an altogether different team that lined up for the hosts.

'We want to test ourselves against the best and we put up a fight. We did it a couple of times but at the moment we're still finding our feet in playing out from those areas.

I believe I've been through an experience that is as pressured as you're ever going to face at any club or global team in getting through a World Cup, so I'm totally comfortable with that, and what's beyond that is to be decided.

"So, given where we're at and we need those experiences to improve, I couldn't ask any more of the players".

"Winning like this on this stage will do us a lot of good and we've started in the best way possible but in football the only thing that matters is the present".

By all accounts he was unimpressed by Spain's overplaying in Russian Federation, where they nearly became a caricature of themselves, and having steered Barcelona away from being suffocated by their own myth, is well placed to do the same for the national team.

"I don't think I did too much wrong - it is the referee's decision at the end of the day", he said.

The Three Lions also suffered a blow after left-back Luke Shaw was stretchered off with a head injury, but he was later said to be "awake and alert". "I think he was a outcome of a unique talent".

"We have to accept Spain were better than us for long periods of the game", said Southgate.

The game will be played at the King Power Stadium in Leicester, meaning Chilwell and Gray could be in line to make their senior worldwide debut at their club stadium.
