Chester-born Tom Heaton suffered late disappointment at Wembley as after a late Spain equaliser denied England victory over Spain.

Burnley skipper Heaton won his second international cap when he was introduced at half time during the 2-2 friendly draw on Tuesday night.

The former Upton-by-Chester High School pupil had impressed for much of the second half but was beaten at the far post by Real Madrid star Isco in the 90th minute as England threw away a two-goal lead.

Heaton, 30, could do little to prevent Spain from pulling one back through former Liverpool man Iago Aspas but he may feel he could have done more to prevent Isco from smuggling home the leveller.

Heaton, who was named in the Euro 2016 squad, won his first cap for the Three Lions back in May when he replaced Southampton’s Fraser Forster for the closing stages of a 2-1 friendly win over Australia at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light.

Heaton has had to wait for international recognition having began his career at Manchester United and being loaned out to a number of Football League clubs after failing to make an appearance for the Old Trafford side.

Successful permanent spells at Cardiff City and Bristol City followed before he joined Burnley in 2013 where he has gone on to establish himself as a key man at Turf Moor.
