The England national team coach Gareth Southgate has reacted to his side’s 3-2 win over Spain in the UEFA Nations League game.
A second half goal from Paco Alcacer and another header by Spain national team captain Sergio Ramos were not enough to cancel Raheem Sterling’s brace and Marcus Rashford’s brilliant finish.
Southgate described the win as a big one for his side, stating that he is proud of the performance the players gave and the courage that was used to approach the game.
The England manager admitted the superiority of the Spanish side and their passing style, hence he had prepared his team to defend in Sevilla with a slim hope of getting a result in the game.
He noted that his attack line is also as dangerous as the Spanish team but the major concern was how to get the ball to them. All of the worries were well handled by his brilliant side.
Southgate is pleased with the quality of the play and the bravery of the players who ensured that the Spanish side concede 3 goals, the first of its kind in a competitive game.
Sterling was full of praise by the manager who thinks the player will keep scoring because he has gotten the confidence to do that.
