Jamie Redknapp has been rating England’s players in every World Cup match and has totted up who the country’s player of the tournament is so far.

It’s fair to say the results may raise an eyebrow or too.

The former Three Lions midfielder has been giving all the squad marks out of ten for each of the five matches so far.

The Liverpool midfielder has earned a 8.3/10 overall and that is not the only surprise.

Second behind Henderson is six-goal Harry Kane, with England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford sitting in third.

Impressive Kieran Trippier picks up a 7.9/10 for his efforts by Redknapp, while the pundit doesn’t include Deli Alli, the goalscoring hero against Sweden, in his top ten.
