Gareth Southgate heaped praise on his England players for their bravery in a 3-2 Nations League victory over Spain in Seville.
The Three Lions stunned the home crowd by roaring into a three-goal lead by half-time, with Raheem Sterling scoring twice to end a 27-game goalless run, while Marcus Rashford was also on the scoresheet.
And head coach Southgate was delighted by the performance, which saw the visitors score with their only three shots on target in the 90 minutes.
He told BBC Radio 5 live: "The quality of the performance – we played with courage and used the ball with courage. If you come and defend for 90 minutes they will unlock you.
"We really showed some quality and a good mentality to play out of their pressing. Spain are very aggressive in the way they press.
"All our players, right through the team, were brave enough to play the way we wanted to play. It's fine to have an idea of how you want to play, but to do it is a huge credit to them."
In particular, Southgate was delighted with the way the front three of Sterling, Rashford and Harry Kane had put the Spanish backline under pressure for much of the game.
He added: "We spoke to the forward players before the game to remind them what a threat they are, and the three of them were outstanding, causing all sorts of problems all night – a tremendous threat."
England are now priced at 10/1 to win the Nations League, with Spain 3/1 and World Cup winners France 3/1.
