It is a battle of European heavy weights when England welcome Spain for the UEFA Nations League A Group 4 fixture this Monday.
The teams met in group’s opening game and Spain snatched a 2-1 win at Wembley Stadium, all three goals of the game falling inside the first 32 minutes.
Spain since went on to bag a huge 6-0 win over Croatia and move to the top of the group with 6 points.
The La Furia Roja were in action in a friendly match against Wales last week and their lethal touch was once again evident in the 4-1 thumping win.
Luis Enrique, who took over as Spain head-coach after the World Cup has now made a 100% winning start. The game against England this Monday will be his fourth in charge.
England drew Croatia 0-0 this Saturday and now fell 5 points behind their host. The Lions had two clear cut chances in the match, but all in all they were poor than usual.
The Three Lions have only 1 point in their bag and will be out of the group leader race with anything less than a win at Sevilla.
