England player ratings: Luke Shaw and John Stones good vs Scotland

Spread the love

 

 

 

Pickford: An excellent night between the sticks. A strong save from O’Donnell was the highlight but he was also commanding from corners. 7

James: Linked up well down the right with Sterling and carries more of an attacking threat than Walker. 7

Stones: When Scotland produced their most dangerous moments, Stones was there to stop them with decisive blocks and interceptions. Hit the post from a corner but will feel he should have scored after losing his man. 8

Mings: The Villa man has formed a tidy partnership with Stones and also showed good awareness to keep Scotland out. 7

Shaw: Confident, composed, cultured. The United left-back grew as an attacking threat as the game went on as he ghosted into the Scotland box. 7

Rice: Bypassed too easily as Scotland enjoyed more success in midfield than they ought to have done. 6

 

Phillips: Back down to earth after Sunday, he ran and ran but struggled to influence the game. 6

Mount: England’s biggest attacking threat, bursting with energy and quality and probably went closest both to unlocking the Scotland defence and to beating David Marshall in goal. 8

Sterling: Bright early on when creating two chances but struggled to stay in the game after that. 5

Kane: Another quiet performance. His transfer value must be decreasing with every game at this Championship. 4

Substitutes:

Grealish (for Foden, 63) : A huge roar greeted his arrival and he enjoyed a few mazy runs. 6

Rashford (for Kane, 74): Looked livelier than Kane. 6

Not used: Ramsdale, Johnstone, Maguire, Tripper, Coady, Chilwell, Bellingham, Henderson, Sancho, Calvert-Lewin
