England goalkeeper, Joe Hart has called on the three lions to be brave ahead of their clash against Spain.
Spain didn’t make it past the round of 16 at the Euro 2016, ending their dominant era, but their playing style could still prove a problem.
England’s muddled play in Euro 2016 was a far cry from Spain’s well-honed methods and, although they have taken 10 points from four subsequent World Cup qualifiers, there remains work to be done on that front.
“We’re trying to express ourselves as a team and find an identity,” said Hart at a pre-match news conference, with Southgate’s men looking to build on Friday’s 3-0 win over neighbours Scotland.
“It’s really difficult for an international manager to do that I think, because you get such little time together and we’re very new.
“But I feel we’ve got a really good squad in terms of wanting to learn and work for each other and that came forward on Friday and hopefully again on Tuesday night.
“I think we’ve got some really important players from their club teams and it’s about encouraging them to be brave enough.”
