Only the group winner moves on.Spain started well but its high defensive line struggled against the speed of England’s young forwards. The visitors were clinical, scoring on all of their attempts on goal. Spain totaled 25 attempts and 70 percent of possession, and blew it.England opened the scoring early in a fast breakaway. Rashford sent a nice ball into space for Sterling, who entered the area with only the goalkeeper to beat and found the top of the net with a superb finish. It was his first goal for England since 2015, and first ever away from Wembley.“It was a beautiful feeling,” Sterling said. “I put a lot of pressure on myself to try to get in the box and score. Sometimes it works for you and sometimes it doesn’t, but it’s my position to score goals so I need to keep that going.”Rashford added to the lead in the 30th after a perfect through ball by Kane, entering the area and finishing with a shot from near the penalty spot.Sterling got on the board again from close range after Kane’s set-up in a move which started with a nice pass by Ross Barkley over the top of the Spanish defenders.Spain got on the board in the 58th through a header by substitute striker Alcacer, who has 10 goals in his last six games with club and country. Ramos’ last-minute goal also was a header.RELEGATED ICELANDIceland needed to beat Switzerland for the first time to avoid relegation but the Swiss got off to a two-goal lead and held on to victory.Switzerland routed Iceland 6-0 at home in the team’s opener. It moved into a tie with Belgium for first place in Group 2. The Belgians have a game in hand. Spain suffered its first loss in a competitive match at home since 2003 against Greece. 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 how tough it is to come here and win and we have done that,” England forward Harry Kane said. “We came out of the blocks firing, great pressing.”Paco Alcacer scored Spain’s first goal early in the second half and Sergio Ramos claimed the second on the final play of the match.“We have to admit we played very badly in the first half,” Spain coach Luis Enrique said. “We made a lot of individual mistakes.”Despite the loss, Spain stayed ahead in Group 4 of League A with two more points than England after three matches. Croatia, with a game in hand, was five points behind Spain.ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum LATEST STORIES Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown NBA Preview: It’s the Warriors, and then everyone else Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
