Fears for Shaw after injury in England v Spain

Sergio Ramos was met with boos while Luke Shaw was stretchered off with a serious-looking head injury in the second half, although the latest reports suggest that the Manchester United defender is awake and communication in the dressing room.

Rashford so almost levelled with a powerful header that De Gea clawed away from his goal while Jordan Pickford comfortable kept out Saul after another sweeping move forward.

Shaw was down for several minutes as he was attended to by the medical staff, during which time an oxygen mask was applied. Danny Rose came on to replace him. Shaw connected with a header but collided with Carvajal, fell backward and his head bounced off the ground.

"It was a double impact".

Shaw wrote, via his personal account: "Thank you for all the love and support I am doing fine and am in the best hands. I'm a fighter so I will be back soon!" The familiar chants from the summer could be heard throughout the game as the Three Lions supporters let manager Gareth Southgate know "he's the one" and that "football is coming home again". "He's talking and seems fairly comfortable", Southgate said.

'We'll have to assess him a bit more overnight and tomorrow.

Bill Belichick shares amusing story illustrating how insanely competitive Tom Brady is
We already know that the Dolphins, Bills and Jets probably won't scare New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick this season. Opening day is exciting for Marcus Cannon , too, but no more so than all of the other games which he says also quite exciting.

"It's hard to tell whether he was unconscious". It was a nasty fall and collision.

Playing bravely out from the back rather than clearing long, England worked the ball to Kane who found the marauding Shaw on the left and his precise pass was ideal for Rashford to slot past his Manchester United team mate David De Gea.

He has arguably been United's brightest star since his return to regular game-time amid a hard start to the Red Devils' season.

Shaw was making his first England start since facing Switzerland in September 2015, a week before his double leg break while playing for United. We've thrown him in after a few games of the season.

"We have got quite a few players short of minutes and a bit of sharpness, so to come into a game like tonight after so long out of the global scene is as tough a test as you can have".
