Video: Rodrigo fires Spain into lead after lacklustre defending by England in UEFA Nations League fixture

Spanish striker Rodrigo fired Luis Enrique’s men into the lead in the 32nd minute after below-par defending by England from an indirect Spanish free kick.

Midfield maestro Thiago Alcântara whipped the ball towards the near-post and star striker Harry Kane failed to keep track of his man, allowing Rodrigo to poke the ball into the net.
