England's recent record over Spain has not been particularly impressive, with the Three Lions notching just two wins over La Furia Roja this millennium - but Spain haven't always been on top.

When David Seaman saved Miguel Angel Nadal’s penalty on June 22, 1996, it not only booked England a place in the European Championships
semi-final, it also cemented the Three Lions’ dominance over the Spanish national team.

That game was the 18th between the two nations. Victory gave England their 11th win, leaving Spain with just five.

The Three Lions had even had a seven game winning streak between October 26, 1960 and June 18, 1980.

In the six matches that followed England’s famous Euro 96 win things have mostly gone in Spain’s favour.

The first meeting between the two nations in the 21st century finished 3-0 to England, thanks to goals from Nick Barmby, Emile Heskey and Ugo
Ehiogu.

Spain won each of the next three matches though, without England even scoring a goal.

The following match, a friendly on November 12, 2011, saw England grab a 1-0 victory thanks to a Frank Lampard goal.

Spain might have felt a little cheated though having had 71% of possession and eight attempts on goal to England’s three.

Spain got their revenge this time last year with a comfortable 2-0 victory.

The last four meetings between the two countries have seen Spain average 60% of possession and England 40% - Spain have also had 37
attempts on goal to England’s 30.
