Spain vs England Preview

Spain vs England

Competition – UEFA Nations League

Stadium – Benito Villamarín

Date: 15th October 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

England visit Spain after failing to beat an underperforming Croatia last week and the Three Lions will face one of their biggest tests in this game.

Spain have started well under Luis Enrique and they will look to build on their first win when they face Three Lions in this game.

Spain beat Wales 4-1 away from home in their last game.

Even though that was a friendly game, the Spaniards showed their class and they have now won and scored 6 goals against their last two British opponents, conceding just once.

Spain have won two of two UEFA Nations League games which has placed them 5 points above England and Croatia who are both facing the prospect of being relegated from this tier.

A win here would guarantee promotion to the next round for the Spaniards.

England have taken one point from two games after a 0:0 draw against Croatia where Marcus Rashford had two chances to claim all three points but failed.

England now look to avenge the 2-1 defeat they suffered at the hands of Spain in Wembley last month.

Spain won when these teams met in September and that was their 3rd win in their last 5 meetings against England.
