England captain Harry Kane angry with ref after Spain defeat

England captain Harry Kane was upset with the match officials after their Nations League defeat to Spain.

Tottenham striker Kane accused Dutch referee Danny Makkelle of being a bottler as England were robbed of a draw at Wembley last night.

The Three Lions captain hit out after former police officer Makkalle disallowed Danny Welbeck's injury-time equaliser after ruling that David De Gea had been fouled as he dropped the ball.

Kane blasted: “In those big moments, you need the ref to stay strong and unfortunately he's just bottled it.

"Danny's just stood there. De Gea has gone up, caught the ball, but as he went down he fell on Danny.

“Danny has not gone to foul him or anything.

“Sometimes goalkeepers get better treatment than the rest of us - and that's unfortunate for us.

“I think we deserved a draw at least. We had good spells."
