Shaw suffered a sickening injury during England's defeat to Spain after a collision with Dani Carvajal during the Nations League game at Wembley. "He will return to Manchester United on Monday", the FA said.

"The only one in my lifetime is Paul Gascoigne and I'm not sure he was developed, I think he was a effect of a unique talent", Southgate, 48, said of his former team-mate whose final England cap came in 1998.

'I want to be in games that matter, I believe I've been through an experience that is as pressured as you're ever going to face at any club or worldwide team in getting through a World Cup.

"I was really close to losing my leg".

There will be frustration at the ease with which Saul Niguez swept in the equaliser - just 120 seconds after England scored - and how sloppily the winning goal from a free kick was conceded, when the zonal marking system was undone and Rodrigo ran free to tuck home Thiago's delivery. "We have to give the other players a start", the manager said.

Tempo was key to beating Manchester United - Brighton boss Chris Hughton
The Brazilian midfielder was at his marauding best at times and will be looking to continue his solid start for the Red Devils. But the damage had already been done as Brighton sat comfortably on their lead until virtually the last kick of the match.

The loss of Shaw early in the second half deprived England of a valuable attacking outlet and they struggled to create chances thereafter.

"He knows we have real belief in him". 'And in the end it's not something that's right to discuss publicly.

"But I thought Gomez's defending was exceptional".

Not that Rashford is guaranteed a place in Tuesday's friendly against Switzerland at Leicester, when Southgate will name a much-changed side. He remains someone with a detailed knowledge and understanding of English players across the senior and junior ranks, a detailed knowledge and understanding of the FA too, and a coach with an ambitious vision for England as a major global force.

Spain had 54.7 per cent of possession against England, a marked contrast to playing more than 1,000 passes against Russian Federation, but they compensated by shutting down their opponents with remarkable efficiency thanks to an intense pressing game, and maintained 85 per cent passing accuracy when they did have the ball. We know there's a distance to go until we are with the very top teams.
