Luis Enrique will have shocked some with his starting XI for Saturday night's UEFA Nations League match against England, with just five players from the line-up against Russian Federation in the World Cup last 16 retaining their spot.

Barcelona's Sergio Busquets starts but he's the only player from the La Liga champions in the side, with Sergi Roberto named on the bench. The performance of their No.1 goalkeeper David de Gea, who had a tournament to forget, added to Spain's woes.

And the England side is: Pickford; Gomez, Maguire, Stones; Trippier, Henderson, Lingard, Dele, Shaw; Rashford, Kane.

"I don't know what's going to happen in the future but that's a position I haven't had any doubts about", the Spain coach said.

"Maybe both of us have very strong characters but we share the same objectives and that is the national team".

Overall there are six changes from the side that was dispiritingly knocked out of the World Cup on penalties by hosts Russian Federation in the last 16.

The North Koreans also attempted similar unsuccessful online bank thefts between 2015 and 2018, worth an estimated $1 billion. The charges come as the Trump administration seeks a denuclarization agreement with the North Korean government.

Now he brings his meticulous, single-minded, dynamic, prickly, all-or-nothing style to the Spain dugout, ready to undergo his first test at Wembley against England on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Sergio Ramos said there was renewed enthusiasm around the squad since Luis Enrique, who was a serial victor during his three seasons in charge of Barcelona, had taken over. We try to evolve our model. I am convinced that is what we will do. We have a lot of ambition but we have to show it. I want to keep winning but I want to always be in the first XI. "A lot of times we are more focused on the machines instead of communicating and speaking with our teammates".

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos claims his "conscience is clear" following the saga surrounding his game-ending challenge on Mohamed Salah during last season's Champions League final.

"I never wanted to hurt a colleague on the pitch, of course, so my conscience is really clear about what I did that night".

"I've come here to win with Spain and I don't care what people might say or how I will be received".
