Fresh Luke Shaw Injury Reportedly Not As Bad As First Appeared

England manager Gareth Southgate and striker Marcus Rashford

And though backed by a packed-out Wembley and the tiresome England Band, Southgate's side were unable to restore parity.

In a clip that is doing the rounds, "Lucho" gave the La Roja skipper a special greeting when they linked up for the first time ahead of UEFA Nations League games against England and Croatia.

Luke Shaw's first England start for three years was ended early by a nasty head injury after a collision with Spain's Dani Carvajal.

But Saul equalised within two minutes and enabled Spain to gain the upper hand before Valencia forward Rodrigo netted at the near post to make it 2-1 on 31 minutes. Shaw appeared to be wearing an oxygen mask as he was stabilised on a stretcher and then wheeled off the field.

Shaw was taken off at the start of the second half after a serious-looking injury.

England's Nations League campaign opened with defeat as they were beaten by Spain in their first match since reaching the World Cup semi-finals.

England manager, Gareth Southgate seemed reasonably happy with Shaw's condition immediately after the game.




And Southgate concedes the duo may not be in his squad for Tuesday's friendly with Switzerland.

The hosts took the lead in the first half through Shaw's United team-mate Marcus Rashford, but England were pegged back nearly immediately by Saul.

Shaw was replaced by Danny Rose after the team of physios had carried him off the pitch.

Southgate said the goal should have stood but admitted his side had struggled to counter Spain's passing game.

"I think this does good for everyone", he added.

Early in that game, which Real Madrid won 3-1, he clashed with Mohammed Salah in an incident that saw the Egypt worldwide sustain a shoulder injury that forced him off prematurely and saw his participation in the World Cup limited.

"We have got 19 matches, it's not very long, but, in my opinion, we have got the best group of players in the country here".
