Rodrigo, who was preferred ahead of Paco Alcacer in the starting eleven, struggled to make an impact on the night and hardly stood out as a focal point in attack for the hosts. The striker had scored the winner for Spain when the two teams met at Wembley last month but it was simply not meant to be for him this time around as he enjoyed a very silent outing.

The 27-year-old, who has scored more goals for Spain this season than for his club Valencia, never looked like causing the England defence any problems whatsoever and his only notable contribution came in the second half when he almost forced Jordan Pickford into making what could have been a costly error.

The Brazilian-born Spain international was replaced in the 72nd minute by Alvaro Morata as a part of Luis Enrique's last roll of the dice to try and salvage something from the game.
