England Ratings

Jordan Pickford – 7

Might have done better with Tchouameni long-ranger but redeemed himself with fine saves from Rabiot and Giroud.

Kyle Walker – 7

Made Mbappe look more than just mortal with a terrific and intelligent display.

John Stones – 6

Solid enough and kept Ground quiet. Once again proof that he likes to play with Maguire.

John Stones stunning pass map vs France


Harry Maguire – 6

Physical when he had to be but his distribution lacked precision when England looked to play forward. Unlucky touch on Giroud header.

Luke Shaw – 6

Exposed for pace and position by Dembele and Griezmann in the first half but improved as England did.

Declan Rice – 6

Mopped up in front of the back four and sensible in possession without really playing a killer pass.

Jordan Henderson – 6

Typical performance full of endeavour and determination but lacked that sprinkling of star dust.

Jude Bellingham – 6

Will only get better and gave his all. Bossed second half. but not quite able to grip the game and shape it. Might have closed down Tchouameni.

Jude Bellingham was an effective presence throughout

Bukayo Saka – 8

Bravery to take on his man rewarded by earning the first Kane penalty. He is the real deal.

Bukayo Saka put in a shining peformance against France

Phil Foden – 7

Struggled to really influence the game in the first half but excellent as England dragged themselves back into the contest.

Harry Kane – 7

Penalty miss will haunt him for months, maybe years. But Kane had been outstanding until that point. Heartbreaking.

Harry Kane influenced the game all over the pitch


Mason Mount (for Henderson 79) – 6

Made an instant impact with his run to draw the penalty that should have forced an extra half hour.

Raheem Sterling (for Saka 79) – 5

Back from his return home but could not make any impact in that last few minutes.

Marcus Rashford (for Foden 85) – 5

Last throw of the dice but couldn’t land the six Southgate needed.

Jack Grealish (for Stones, 90+6) – 5

No chance to do anything.
