"In the last few years Spain have dropped a couple of levels and our objective is to recover what made us win in the first place", Ramos told a news conference on Friday.

"Those are the heights we all want to reach".

While the countdown for the 2020 European Championships begins now for Gareth Southgate and his young squad, Kane sees this latest competition as the ideal opportunity for England to build on this summer's achievements. "The World Cup does not seem that long ago and it is like coming back to meet with your mates again".

Luis Enrique believes his most pressing challenge as Spain coach is to evolve the team from the possession-focused identity, widely dubbed "tiki-taka", that saw them fail to breach a limited Russian Federation side and ultimately lose on penalties in the World Cup round of 16 despite enjoying 75 percent of the ball.

"We got on so well and to be back so quickly".

World champions France had third-choice keeper Alphonse Areola to thank, for a 0-0 draw against Germany in their inaugural Nations League game on Thursday. Certain finishes I could have done better, certain movements.

"If you look back through history, England's competitive record (of winning) against top teams is non-existent", he added.

Yes. I feel that it will give us something to play for, we can go out and achieve something and hopefully win something for the nation, which we haven't done since 1966.

You can read the full interview with Kyle in the match programme for the Spain game, which also features an England Supporters' Club Q&A with Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate an interviews with new Spain coach Luis Enrique, Steve McManaman and Michael Owen on their adventures playing in Spain, an eight-page kids' pull-out and much more.
