How did the players fare in England's 3-3 draw with Germany?

ENGLAND (3-4-3):

3 Pope: His discomfort with the ball at his feet was obvious, and he capped a bad night with the spillage that enabled Germany to equalise

6 Stones: Hadn’t really put a foot wrong before suffering a hamstring strain that could put his World Cup participation in doubt

4 Dier: Was pulled all over the place by the German attack and made a number of poor decisions

3 Maguire: How bad does he have to be before he is dropped? Played a major role in both of Germany’s opening two goals

6 James: Was quiet for the opening hour, but finally got onto the front foot and delivered an excellent cross for Shaw’s goal

5 Rice: Wasn’t able to prevent Germany’s midfielders from breaking forward, but kept on trying to put his foot in

8 BELLINGHAM: Burst into life in the final quarter of the game, with his positive running helping transform England’s outlook

7 Shaw: Improved markedly as the evening wore on and got England back into the game with a composed finish

5 Sterling: Got into three great positions, but wasted them all with some errant finishing – his lack of composure remains a major issue

7 Kane: Spearheaded England’s comeback in the latter stages and held his nerve with a superb spot-kick into the top corner

5 Foden: Played one excellent pass to send Sterling clear, but was anonymous for much of his time on the field


6 Walker (for Stones, 37): Was thrown onto the field in the first half – is nailed on for a place in the World Cup squad

7 Saka (for Foden, 65): Played a major role in England’s radical late improvement – made a great run to set up the second goal

7 Mount (for Sterling, 65): Showcased his value in the closing stages – produced a wonderful finish for his goal

J Henderson (for Bellingham, 90)
