England captain Kane accuses referee of 'bottling it' during Spain defeat

Shaw’s resurgence is set to continue with England

The former Barcelona boss also defended the Manchester United goalkeeper after he was criticised for his performances at the World Cup and claims the goalkeeper is the best in the world.

After the break, Luke Shaw departed the pitch on a stretcher after a awful collision with Dani Carvajal.

Referee Danny Makkelie had other ideas and cut short the celebrations by penalising Welbeck for a foul to ensure Spain got the win their overall play had deserved.

Asked if the goal should have stood, the England striker told Sky Sports Football: "Yeah, 100 per cent".

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

Kane, who scored six goals in seven games, was presented with the award by England manager Gareth Southgate before kick-off.

"But I thought Gomez's defending was exceptional".

Kane released Shaw free down the left on 11 minutes and his teasing cross curled perfectly into the path of Rashford to slot past United team-mate De Gea.

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


"We know the quality they possess".

Just ahead of him in midfield, Henderson fared reasonably, providing some useful balls over the top to utilise Rashford's pace, but Sky Sports co-commentator Gary Neville was critical of his role in Rodrigo's victor.

"We were a little bit disjointed in some of our pressing, particularly in the first half". He allowed the players the morning off and liberated them from having to wake up at any particular time for breakfast.

"At the moment, we're not able to do that when teams are pressing us high".

'I'm very calm about him, he's a top level player, something he has shown in this game and throughout his years in England.

Enrique is likely to go with a very similar team to the one that beat England at Wembley, with no injuries picked up during the game.

"He is one of the best goalkeepers in the world, he is proving it in the Premier League week-in, week-out and I never had any doubts".

"But we don't have a creative player like Andrea Pirlo".

Luis Enrique said himself during his first press conference that Spain had dropped to being ninth in the world.
