Raheem Sterling scored 2 and Rashford 1 in the England away win

England were 3-0 up after an impressive first half, Raheem Sterling scored the opener just within 15th minute of the first half, ending his three-year England scoring drought with a close range shot. The Manchester City winger has not scored for England in 27 matches since 2015.

Marcus Rashford scored the second goal of the game just before the half-hour mark with a right footed shot from the centre of the box, assisted by Harry Kane’s through ball.

Raheem Sterling scored his second of the night with an assist from Harry Kane, making it 3-0 before half-time.

As expected Spain responded in the second half just before the hour mark through Paco Alcacer.

It became a nerve-wrecking night for England as Spain mounts more pressure forward especially for the goalkeeper – Jordan Pickford, who luckily escaped a penalty appeal, as he appeared to have brought down Rodrigo.

Spain hit the woodwork and Sergio Ramos scored a late consolation goal 97th minute. England secured a well deserved historic away victory over Spain – the first away win over Spain before today was the 4-2 in 1987 .

It is also a shocking defeat for Spain because they rarely lose in their own field.
