England’s final game of 2016, a friendly against Spain at Wembley, proved to be a positive one as Southgate’s new high pressing, counter attacking tactics made life extremely difficult for the visitors. England looked on for a 2-0 win after Lallana and Vardy scored early in both halves and it’s safe to say they were controlling the match up to this point.

However, both managers made numerous changes at half time and midway through the second half, and while England continued to dominate and create more guilt edge chances, they could not find the elusive third goal that would have killed the match off. This proved to be there downfall and Spain cruelly punished them with two superb late goals on 90 and 95 minutes, which left the England players and fans heartbroken.
