International Football: Spain 2-0 England
England has been given something to think about after this friendly defeat to Spain before they resume their World Cup qualification. With David Beckam getting his 108th cap England started brightly, but as Spain got in to their flow, England showed they are far from a World Cup winning team, with plenty of work to do. Better put your thinking Capello on Fabio.
The revitalisation of England was given a dose of reality after a comprehensive defeat by Euro 2008 champions Spain.
Gabriel Agbonlahor shot wide early on but Spain went ahead when David Villa wriggled through John Terry and Phil Jagielka before a clinical finish.
Fernando Llorente powered in a header to confirm Spain's superiority.
David Beckham came on for his record-equalling 108th England cap and set up Carlton Cole late on but the striker's effort was cleared off the line.
It was England's first defeat in nine games and the manner of the loss will give manager Fabio Capello a closer idea of the task ahead.
