Alan Shearer makes Jose Mourinho transfer prediction over Marcus Rashford

Alan Shearer makes Jose Mourinho transfer prediction over Marcus Rashford

At home, England is the slight favorite after what it accomplished at the World Cup, but this is a talented Spain team with the quality to win.

Rashford scored his fourth England goal on his 26th cap against Spain in the UEFA Nations League on Saturday night but could not prevent the Three Lions from suffering a 2-1 defeat.

From the World Cup semi-finals to defeat in worldwide football's version of the Intertoto Cup.

England move up to Leicester for their next challenge, a friendly against Switzerland on Tuesday.

The seven-minute delay due to treatment of Shaw's injury counted for nine minutes stoppage time and England will certainly feel robbed by the decision to disallow Danny Welbeck's late goal after he was deemed to have fouled his former United team-mate David De Gea as he challenged for the ball.

Not that the lead lasted all that long.

In their first game post their summer-of-love, England succumbed in the new Nations League.

England teammates expressed relief about Shaw's injury, with manager Gareth Southgate equally relieved.




Premier League legend Alan Shearer believes that Marcus Rashford will struggle to emulate the greatest goalscorers at Manchester United.

England's joy was short-lived as La Roja hit back two minutes later, as Rodrigo surged into the box before picking out Saul Niguez, who sent a fine low strike past Jordan Pickford.

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

The hosts did nearly get one back soon after, only for Rashford to be denied by a superb save from David Gea.

Shaw was replaced by Danny Rose after the team of physios had carried him off the pitch.

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

There was much to ponder for Southgate who has now seen his side lose three matches in a row against Croatia, Belgium and now Spain - proof they are still a work in progress.
