Ross Barkley was in fine form for England as the Three Lions defeated Spain 3-2 in Seville on Monday night.

Barkley who has been absent from the national team for over a year was brilliant to watch against the Spaniards, and the Chelsea midfielder was involved in Raheem Sterling’s goal as he played a teasing ball over the top to find Harry Kane who laid it on a plate for Sterling to score.

England were 3 goals ahead at half-time courtesy of goals from Sterling either side of a Marcus Rashford strike, but the hosts did pull a goal back through substitute Paco Alcacer shortly after the break, before Sergio Ramos added a second in injury time, but Gareth Southgate’s side held firm to claim the victory.

Marcos Alonso played the entire game for Spain, while Alvaro Morata came on for the final 20 minutes of the game and was shown a yellow card for dissent in injury time. Cesar Azpilicueta and Kepa Arrizibalaga were unused subs against the Three Lions.

Barkley was taken off for Kyle Walker after 76 minutes, while Mason Mount remained on the bench

Mateo Kovacic didn’t feature for Croatia in their 2-1 friendly victory over Jordan, while Chelsea loanee Mario Pasalic played the entire game for the Croat.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
