England played against Spain in the UEFA Nation League on Sunday.

Just after 40 minutes, England already had 3 goals. Rahem Sterling scored 2 of them, and Marcus Rashford scored the other one. It was a wonderful start for England.

In the second half, Spain attacked really hard. On 57 minutes, Paco Alcacer scored a goal from a header to make it 3-1.

On 63 minutes, England's goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford made a silly mistake. He ran with the ball then lost it to Rodrigo. Luckily, he managed to kick the ball out before the Spain player could score.

The final result was 3-2. England won against Spain for the first time in 31 years.
