Gareth Southgate has done all he can. Now, the boardroom. 

Has the former Middlesbrough boss done enough to be hired as the next England manager?

Hopefully he won't have too long to wait. That's it from us, until next time. Cheerio.

Good news on Lallana?

England 2-2 Spain

Adam Lallana went off early after suffering an injury and while England interim boss Gareth Southgate had no news on his condition, the man himself has appeared to suggest he's fine.

Alan Ferguson: Southgate is steady, safe and steady, not going to tear up any trees so if that's the best there is

Johnny Magrinho: Distinct difference between both teams. England tried hard to win but drew and Spain played for 5 minutes & scored 2.  

England 2-2 Spain

A few more comments from Gareth Southgate, this time speaking to BBC Radio 5 live: "I have got to look at what the players have given and the way they have tried to play Spain toe to toe. We've played a top, top team. We used the ball really well at times and most pleasing of all we pressed high up the pitch. The biggest thing we have to take from the game is that as it wears on we have to keep the ball better to rest more. You could see we tired a bit towards the end."

On his England future: "I don't know other than I have a couple of days at home. The organisation will go through a process so from my point of view I can reflect on a brilliant experience. There are two ways to make a nation proud, win matches and excite people with performances and I felt we showed the latter tonight."

'An absolute joke'

England 2-2 Spain

Danny Mills

Ex-England defender on Radio 5 live

Danny Mills is VERY passionate about FA chairman Greg Clarke's comments about Gareth Southgate in the pre-match programme, saying they suggested he isn't going to get the job.

"I think it is an absolute joke. Those comments from the chairman in the programme to me say you are not getting the job. Those are the comments you pick up on. Gareth has no idea what will happen next. He has been fantastic with the press, very open and honest, but they clearly have not given him an indication what happens next. I cannot believe that.

"The programme comments sound like an obituary. Gareth has clearly had no indication that he has a really good chance of getting this job."

'The remit has been fulfilled'

England 2-2 Spain

As expected, Gareth Southgate was also asked about his future on ITV: "I've loved doing it. It's not my decision. We're proud of what we've done in the situation and tonight's performance was special.

"I've proved that I can handle big occasions. Until this run, under this spotlight, and in matches like Friday's against Scotland under intense pressure, you're never sure how it is going to be. I'm pleased and I think the remit we were given has been fulfilled.

On when a decision will be made: "I've no idea. We've got a European Under-21 Championship next summer and the draw is being made next month. 

"I need to know where I'm going to park my car for the next few weeks!"

'We must keep the ball better'

England 2-2 Spain

England interim coach Gareth Southgate, talking to ITV: "It was a fantastic performance and I can't fault the effort. I'm pleased with the way we pressed and used the ball going forward on the counter attack.

"We started to tire in the second half and that's where keeping the ball better will allow us to conserve energy better. 

"We played one of the best teams in the world and I can't have asked for any more. Maybe not winning will be better for us in the long run, knowing what we have to do at this level."

1 - Iago Aspas has scored his first goal for Spain in his first shot on target. Special.

Jon Evans: If Southgate gets it the FA have to take him long term no matter what grief and failures may come. He's young and learning.  

Alexis Ox Chambo: No Southgate isn't the man. We need someone to take rank that players can look up to for what they've achieved  

England 2-2 Spain

At 89 minutes, the England manager's contract was effectively in Gareth Southgate's hands. 

Will the events of the final five minutes give the powers that be the jitters?

'Gareth Southgate has been brilliant'

England 2-2 Spain

England scorer Jamie Vardy, speaking to ITV Sport about ending his 14-game goal drought: "Finally it is over, let's hope there is more to come."

On the 'mannequin' celebration: "We had a little idea, thought it was the perfect time to get it started and everyone followed."

On interim manager Gareth Southgate: "He has been brilliant. He has not changed too much but you have seen in the performance that we came with a plan. It was not to be at the end of the game."

England 2-2 Spain

Chris Waddle

Ex-England winger, BBC Radio 5 live

I can't really remember Pepe Reina making unbelievable saves. If England had the better chances, how did he only make one save?

The substitutes changed the game for Spain. They started asking questions of the back four of England. The discipline looked very good for 80 minutes, maybe England got disjointed because of a lot of substitutions or Spain just upped it a gear.

'There were a lot of good things'

England 2-2 Spain

Jordan Henderson

England captain Jordan Henderson talking to ITV: "I thought we worked really hard so to concede two goals so late on is really disappointing. We gave everything. We created chances and looked dangerous on the counter, they didn't create many chances. 

"We matched Spain in terms of work rate and effort, there were a lot of good things. But to reflect on that so soon after conceding those goals is hard."

England worked hard but again it boils down to England looking after the ball and we don't do it very well.

Anthony: Despite Spain's comeback, Gareth Southgate has lot to be impressed about, still room for improvement..   

Phil Critchley: So without really trying for 85 mins #Esp put 2 past #Eng Don't fancy our chances against their 1st XI

'What do we expect?'

England 2-2 Spain

Danny Mills

Ex-England defender on Radio 5 live

An OK performance from England. Realistically, what do we expect? Under Gareth Southgate we have seen three steady performances and this was no different. There was never going to be any great change just because we were playing Spain at Wembley.

Chris Waddle

Spain deserved something. They didn't create a lot but they really put England under pressure in the final 15 minutes.

FULL-TIME

England kick-off, and the referee blows his whistle.

Well that escalated quickly.

GOAL - England 2-2 Spain

Isco

Well then...

With what must be the last kick of the game, Isco is rewarded for great persistence in the box, flicking the ball through Tom Heaton's legs from a tricky angle.

How very England.

England 2-1 Spain

Nervous finish to this game, can England hold on? 

Into the last minute of stoppage time. There's a huge roar from the home fans, full time? Nope, a paper aeroplane successfully landed on the pitch... 

CLOSE!

England 2-1 Spain

There'll be five minutes of injury time. There's a few jeers and whistles from the pocket of Spain fans because Jordan Henderson is down injured.

He's able to get up and carry on and immediately Spain charge forward. They've come to life and only a good John Stones block prevents Isco from getting a shot on target. He was unmarked and 14 yards from goal - a really, really good chance.

FULL-TIME

Northern Ireland's unbeaten home record disappears down the drain. An understrength Croatia end their hosts' 10-match unbeaten run at Windsor Park.

Northern Ireland 0-3 Croatia

Croatia have switched off. They're ready for a shower and a decent film on the bus home. Their defence passes the ball out for a corner, Kyle Lafferty nodding over the bar from the resulting set-piece.

Two minutes of stoppage time coming up...

GOAL - England 2-1 Spain

Iago Aspas

With minutes left, England's defence is breached courtesy of a lovely goal by Iago Aspas. The former Liverpool striker, on fire in La Liga at the moment, drives forward, cutting in from the right before powering a shot into the roof of the net.

Enough time for an equaliser?

England 2-0 Spain

What's this all about? The referee stops play suddenly, for what it isn't entirely clear. He picks up the ball and as it is put down the the turf at halfway where Inigo Martinez swiftly goes for a cheeky attempt at goal. 

Gareth Southgate is not happy with whatever all that was about, he's fuming at the fourth official.

Odd carry on.

Northern Ireland 0-3 Croatia

Northern Ireland's best chance of the evening. Predictably it falls to Kyle Lafferty, who can't squeeze the ball past Croatia keeper Lovre Kalinic. Not tonight. 

A surprisingly understated tweet from Eastleigh after what is the upset of the FA Cup first round. The National League side have dumped out League One Swindon in convincing fashion.

Petering out is this one now. Northern Ireland fans are legging it out of Windsor Park, trying to beat the post-match traffic. Something is telling them their team isn't going to maintain the unbeaten home run...

England 2-0 Spain

Eight minutes to go and John Stones reads the danger well to stab the ball away from Alvaro Morata's feet inside the box.

On the rare occasion Spain do attack, the England defence has done what it has to do. Better after some shaky recent displays.

Never too late

Aaron Cresswell comes on

Aaron Cresswell was released by Liverpool. He is proof that just because a team releases you, it doesn't mean your career is over. 

Northern Ireland 0-3 Croatia

From good Cop to bad Cop. Ahem. 

Croatia scorer Duje Cop can't repeat his earlier heroics, smacking a free-kick into the advertising hoardings behind the Northern Irish goal. Into the final 10...

SUBSTITUTION

England 2-0 Spain

It's never too late for an international call-up. Ander Herrera showed that a little earlier as he came on to make his Spain debut at the age of 27 and now the 26-year-old Aaron Cresswell comes on to make his first senior appearance. The West Ham full-back replaces Danny Rose.

Elsewhere across Europe

Wondering why we've not updated you with the goings on from across the continent? Because nothing has happened. Still goalless in Italy v Germany, France v Ivory Coast and Austria v Slovakia.

A big 10 years....

SUBSTITUTION

England 2-0 Spain

Another change as Manchester City's Nolito gets the chance to stretch his legs for the final 13 minutes. He replaces Sergio Busquets.
