France remain solid.
in a match featuring the last two World Cup champions Germany and France defenses took over with the French goalkeeper Areola being the man of the match, the day of his first cap. Germany pushed in the second half but the scoreless draw was the ultimate result.
England defeated at home.
Spain came from behind to win a big game at Wembley against the last World Cup semifinalists. Spain proved to be strong to overcome an early 1-0 deficit.
Following an early exit in Russia losing to the hosts, Spain start a new cycle. Former FC Barcelona coach Luis Enrique took over with a splashing inaugural win.
England coach, Southgate, reacts:
“It was a really tough game.They are a top, top side and I think for spells kept the ball incredibly well, pressed us and we didn’t keep the ball in the early part of the game well enough.
They pressed extremely well and it took us a while to work out where that press was coming from and find a solution to it. We did it a couple of times but at the moment we’re still finding our feet in playing out from those areas.
They have a system in Spain that has produced some of the best midfield players in the world ever. At the moment we have a different profile of player, we can’t play the way that they want to play.
It takes time. We’ve come a long way in a short space of time and today was as tough a test as you could have against a team that presses like that. And, they are so good in possession.”
“I think at the moment we have to stick with the plan, stick with what we’re doing and just get better at doing it.”
