   Kane has played down claims of his special talent

Southgate could conceivably have picked a far stronger side and his decision to experiment this way is a bold one when, despite everything England achieved at the World Cup, the paradox is that his win percentage, 50%, is now no better than Steve McClaren's time in charge.

While England have changed little since their run to the World Cup semifinals, with nine of the starting 11 having played in Russian Federation during the summer, the turnover during Gareth Southgate's two-year reign in charge was evident in this game.

The Manchester United left-back was making his first worldwide start in three years after battling back from a broken leg and loss of form in the past two seasons.

The Three Lions came close to equalising in injury time after De Dea dropped the ball on Welbeck before the Arsenal forward finished from close range.

"So there's a lot of good individual positives for us and for me, as a collective, they gave everything to get back into the game and I have to commend them for that".

"If anybody wasn't aware of it, then yes [it is a reality check]", Southgate said. Everybody has got to play a part in that but the clubs own the player and they have got to do the right thing for themselves. We know there's a distance to go until the very top teams. "At moments we compete and we look like being able to create chances".

The success of Smokey and the Bandit , though, had a bit of a surprisingly negative effect on Reynolds' career as an actor. He also earned People's Choice Awards in 1979, 1982 and 1983 as all-around male entertainer of the year.

"We're under no illusions that Spain were the better team for long periods of that but they are brilliant at what they do and we are in the early stages of what we're trying to do".

'We want to test ourselves against the best and we put up a fight.

"We know the quality they possess". "I think an outstanding talent like him would", he said.

"We talked a bit after the World Cup about the demands of the modern player".

When asked whether Welbeck's goal should after he was penalised for a foul on Spain goalkeeper David de Gea, Kane told Sky Sports: "100 per cent. I said right across the summer, we're under no illusions about that, but also we are prepared for that challenge".

It's not the typical match-up you would expect to be highlighted ahead of an England game, especially with the Premier League stars that will be gracing the pitch, but the battle of the full backs might well decide the outcome of the match.
