A youthful England beat Spain 3-2 on their own turf at the Estadio Benito Villamarín in Seville on Monday night.
A stunning first-half for the visitors in the League A Group 4 match saw Gareth Southgate’s side three goals to the good at the break.
Seven minutes of added time allowed Sergio Ramos to claw the score back to 3-2 but Spain were unable to get a crucial equaliser.
It’s the first time they’ve conceded goals three at home in competitive match and England first away win in the country for over 30 years.
These were the best tweets and jokes as England win 3-2 in Spain in the UEFA Nations League:
2-0! Tell you what, England could go all the way in this World Cup. #ESPENG

Imagine Alvaro Morata coming on as a half time substitute for Spain and scoring a hattrick to rescue the match for the home side?
No, me neither.

If you think I’m going to watch one half of England playing decent football in a friendly and start saying it’s coming home again, you’ll be absolutely fucking correct. ITS COMING HOME #ESPENG #SPAENG

Spain were unbeaten in competitive home games since 2003.
They had never conceded three goals in a competitive home game.
It was 840 days since they were last beaten in 90 minutes.
And then they met Gareth Southgate’s England. pic.twitter.com/cT6yJuMfvK

Ramos trying to rally Spain to a comeback after bringing it back to 3-2 then the ref blowing the full time whistle immediately after truly is delightful pic.twitter.com/TmSdmQdUTO

I feel sorry for Spain, UEFA need to ask serious questions about putting them into a group with a couple of World Cup semi-finalists.
