The first half was bad, we have to recognise that.

In League B, Bosnia-Herzegovina defeated Northern Ireland 2-1 at home to take a six-point lead over Austria atop Group 3.

After an electric first half that had witnessed three slick breakaway goals, England were creaking, as Paco Alcacer headed in for 3-1 and Jordan Pickford nearly gifted Rodrigo a second.

It was Spain's first loss at home in a competitive game in 15 years, and a huge statement from Southgate's men. It hadn't lost at home in 38 matches, and had not conceded three goals in a home match since 1991 in a friendly against Hungary.

It shows Sterling appearing to suffer from cramp as Ramos stands next to him - while the England star is in obvious discomfort, the Spaniard is not the one to blame it seems. Pickford is still learning the game and should keep his counsel more often than not, or it could come back to bite him.

The number of stores peaked in 2012 at 4,000, including its Sears Canada division that was later spun off. The latest blow for Sears came Monday, when a $134 million debt payment it could not afford came due.

"We pushed them (England) all the way back in the second half and it's a shame we didn't score the second goal earlier, because our fans would have scored the third by themselves".

The Three Lions manager has admitted that several of his players are psychologically jaded after their exertions at the World Cup in Russian Federation and then being given very little time to recuperate with the Premier League kicking off on August 10.

"The boys can take a lot of belief from that performance and the next challenge for us is to advance".

Raheem Sterling ended his three-year scoring drought for England in their stunning win in Spain. Only the group victor moves on.

The World Cup in the summer was of course a great tournament and England making it to the semis obviously was a big bonus, though they did ride their luck and got a very fortunate draw.

It was certainly a good night for England and Dier but as good as Busquets? The quality of the decision making, passing, finishing was top. It was his first goal for England since 2015, and first ever away from Wembley.

While Sterling did not accuse Ramos of wrongdoing, he was soon villified by fans online who claimed it as another example of his physical, often brutal style of play.

"England have been brilliant, I've been so impressed".

Spain substitute Paco Alcacer gave the hosts some hope on the hour-mark and while Ramos made the scoreline a bit more respectable, he finds himself in the headlines for all the wrong reasons yet again.
