Manchester United's Luke Shaw stretchered off on England duty vs. Spain

England face Spain at Wembley

Luke Shaw insisted he is "doing fine" after being stretchered off with a nasty-looking head injury on his first England start for three years in a 2-1 defeat to Spain on Saturday.

De Gea produced an acrobatic save to dent Rashford a second goal shortly afterwards but Spain ended the half on top.

England manager, Gareth Southgate seemed reasonably happy with Shaw's condition immediately after the game.

"He may have mistakes like everybody else, but we have one of the best in the world".

England and Spain also face World Cup runners-up Croatia in League A Group 4 of the UEFA's new tournament created to add spice to the global calendar.

"But I thought he showed some good moments and he's a player that I am sure can play a big part with us as we move forwards", Southgate said.

England and Spain will meet on Saturday when they kick off their first ever UEFA Nations League campaigns.

Captain Sergio Ramos added: "We have started a new era with a coach who has a lot of experience and there are few better ways to start than to win at Wembley".

Football Association doctors will continue to monitor and assess Luke Shaw's brain after the England and Manchester United defender was involved in a sickening collision at Wembley. Shaw, whose fine pass set up Rashford's goal, received treatment for several minutes on the field before being taken off apparently wearing an oxygen mask. He concluded his tweet by saying "I'm a fighter so I will be back soon".

It was a disappointing display from England, however they were left to bemoan the match officials when Danny Welbeck's 97th minute equaliser was ruled out for a foul on Spain goalkeeper David De Gea.

Shaw was the world's most expensive teenager when he signed for United from Southampton for a reported £27 million ($35 million) in 2014, weeks after representing England at the World Cup in Brazil.
