Referee bottled Welbeck decision, claims Kane

Gareth Southgate has created an enjoyable environment for England players

Gareth Southgate has created an enjoyable environment for England players

Southgate, 48, led England to the World Cup semi-finals this summer, their best performance since 1990.

The match was halted for almost five minutes soon after the restart when England defender Shaw went down after a collision with Dani Carvajal and had to be stretchered off the field.

"Yeah 100 per cent".

"In the big moments you need the referee to stay strong, but unfortunately he has bottled it", said Kane.

England were left to ponder their first competitive defeat at Wembley since they lost a Euro 2008 qualifier to Croatia in November 2007, a run stretching back 24 games - and also Southgate's first home defeat as manager.

"We hung in there and in the last 25 or 30 minutes we really came into the game, kept the ball a lot better and created some good chances and could well have got a draw out of it".

Southgate echoed his captain's frustration but did not allow the official's mistake to mask some of England's shortcomings.

"It's ridiculous to doubt De Gea".

"I think it's clear for everybody to see that it should have been a goal".

"We're seeing that with some of our junior teams". We both have the same objective and before judging someone I like to meet them for myself in person.

"Their retention of the ball was top class".

"We were a little bit disjointed in some of our pressing, particularly in the first half".

"We're just hoping he'll use this rage as a source of motivation rather than loudly moaning about the Peace of Westphalia, as he is at the moment".

"This was a flawless night, the team picked up a huge victory and we saw a very impressive Spain side", said Saul.

The former Barcelona boss fielded a very different side to the one that flopped during the World Cup, having dropped Koke and Jordi Alba, while losing David Silva, Gerard Pique and Andres Iniesta to retirement.

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

"I am especially happy about De Gea's performance", said Enrique.
