LONDON (Reuters) - Isco scored in the fifth minute of stoppage time as Spain launched an improbable fightback to snatch a 2-2 draw against England with both their goals coming after the 89th minute at Wembley on Tuesday.

England looked like ending a dismal year with a glimmer of hope as a first-half penalty from Adam Lallana and Jamie Vardy's header after the break gave them a thoroughly deserved two-goal lead.

Yet the comeback began with the home fans already heading for the exits as Iago Aspas cut into the area and thumped the ball into the top corner.

Isco then stunned the Wembley crowd by hitting the ball through substitute keeper Tom Heaton's legs from a tight angle to deprive England boss Gareth Southgate of a major scalp to end his four-game spell in interim charge.
