Jack Rodwell hailed his England debut as "perfect" after helping them topple world champions Spain.

Everton midfielder Rodwell came off the bench for the final 33 minutes of Saturday's backs-to-the-wall 1-0 victory at Wembley following his promotion from the under-21 squad. The 20-year-old insisted there was no better time or place to have made his senior bow.

"It was a perfect night all round. It's a proud moment for me. As a kid, I always dreamed of making my senior debut. So it's a dream come true," said Rodwell.
