Great win. We rode our luck no end in the second half, but that first half was stunning. To beat a team as good as Spain away with such a young side, it would have to be something like this game. It's a gambler's win.  Hit them hard early in, surprise them, and get far enough in front that nerves and an inability to manage the game won't hurt us in the end.

Just to quell some of the optimism on here, one I.Aspas is currently playing for Spain.


That England squad isn't exactly full of experienced players. I think they're a breath of fresh air and Southgate's selection was remarkably brave. Spain fielded a lot of experienced internationals.

It was brave but also very lucky. The keeper should have been sent off and Spain were camped in the England half for the entirety of the second half.


It was an entertaining match. Definitely not one full of quality.



To be fair though, if the ref had given the penalty for the trip on Sterling at the start of the second half, Spain don't get anywhere near coming back.

I was going to post this in my League 1, 2 etc. thread but I thought I'd put it here. Accrington chairman tweeted this. I can't find the original tweet.



In a landmark ruling @EFL have decided without agreement that away team should get the revenue from their travelling fans. 

In an absolute shambles, the home team loses a major part of the revenue from staging the game despite paying the costs for it.


If that happens, it will devastate teams like Accrington Stanley.
