Kane slams ref for disallowed Welbeck goal

Shaw’s resurgence is set to continue with England

Shaw’s resurgence is set to continue with England

England had a goal disallowed at the death when Danny Welbeck was adjudged to have fouled David de Gea.

Luke Shaw insisted he is "doing fine" after being stretchered off with a nasty-looking head injury on his first England start for three years in a 2-1 defeat to Spain on Saturday.

Makkelie initially appeared to have awarded the goal, but after a discussion with his assistant behind the goal, he ruled it out.

Asked if the goal should have stood, the England striker told Sky Sports Football: "Yeah, 100 per cent".

"Danny Welbeck stood there, David de Gea went up, he caught the ball but as he went down he fell on Danny, no foul or anything, and the ball dropped".

"Big moments you need a firm referee who doesn't, under the pressure, make wrong decisions".

Goals from Saul Niguez and Rodrigo gave Spain the win after Marcus Rashford had opened the scoring at Wembley.

England struggled after Rashford had been denied by De Gea and the second half would be 31 minutes old before a home player touched the ball inside the Spanish penalty area. "I've seen teams fold in similar circumstances".




The highest level of achievement is also something Kane wants for his England team-mates - urging them not to rest on the accomplishment of reaching a World Cup semi-final for the first time in 28 years.

"It takes time. We've come a long way in a short space of time and today was as tough a test as you could have against a team that presses like that and are so good in possession".

"Their retention of the ball was top class".

"At the moment, we're not able to do that when teams are pressing us high. 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".

"Paul Gascoigne, Steven Gerrard, Paul Scholes, we've had players like that in the past".

"We were disappointed to finish that way; I thought we played well, especially in the second half", said the England captain.

"They are a top, top side and I think for spells kept the ball incredibly well, pressed us and we didn't keep the ball in the early part of the game well enough".
