STARTING LINE-UP

Formation 4-2-3-1

Image

Jordan Pickford – 7

Didn’t have an awful lot to do, but always looked calm and very assured when called upon. He was solid and communicated well with his defenders. (Adam)

Kyle Walker – 6

Walker; a sloppy and lacklustre start. Gave a number of balls away, but settled into the game as it went on. Has been one of the better performers thus far though and you can’t deny his quality in the right areas. (Aaron)

John Stones – 8

Entirely focused and confident performance for Stones. Didn’t put a foot wrong all game and mopped up everything he needed to. His partnership with Maguire looks a really strong one and a fifth consecutive clean sheet is something to be applauded. (Hannah)

Image

Harry Maguire – 8.5

Scored a great, powerful header to extend England’s advantage in Rome and defended calmly and superbly throughout. (Adam)

Luke Shaw – 9

Another standout performance that illustrated Shaw’s versatility going forward and defensively. A clean sheet and two more assists made it a record-equalling night for Luke Shaw, reaching Beckham’s assist tally. (Georgia)

Image

Delcan Rice – 7

Always shielding the defence and ticking things over. His partnership with Phillips is blossoming. (Liam)

Kalvin Phillips – 7

Phillips had little to do against Ukraine but played his role when needed. Substituted in the second half to avoid a potential suspension, an indication of involvement in the semi-final. (Georgia)

Mason Mount – 7

There is no doubting Mason Mount worked hard in this match. He did drift in and out of the game while the likes of Kane and Rice were more eye-catching with their commanding performances. However, he played a part in two goals and helped out defensively when needed. (Hannah)

Image

Raheem Sterling – 9

Involved in everything good England did.

A delightful assist for the first goal. If anyone’s un-droppable it’s him. There’s an argument to say he’s the player of the tournament. (Liam)

Jadon Sancho – 6

In the first half, there was very little to discuss. Near none existent at times. The second half came into the game a little bit more, with some strong runs and nice skill on the flanks, often with little end product. Good to see him on the pitch though. Lucky to play a full 90. (Aaron)

Image

Harry Kane – 9

A confident Kane returned to lead the line after his brief drought ended against Germany. The captain added a further two goals against Ukraine, opening the scoring within the opening 5 minutes. His brace was made up of a composed early finish and a well-placed header in the second half. (Georgia)

Substitutions:

Image

Jordan Henderson – 8

A very pleasing 35 mins for the Liverpool captain, scored his first international goal as well with a great header. (Justin)

Kieran Trippier – 6

Little to do after replacing the excellent Shaw. (Justin)

Marcus Rashford – 6

Again all the hard work had been done but good to get some mins. (Justin)

Jude Bellingham – 6

The future for England’s midfield and is getting crucial experience now in these big games that will only help in the future. (Justin)

Calvert-Lewin – 5

Again nice to get on the pitch for the Everton striker but with Kane now hitting form at the right time I doubt we will see him again. (Justin)
