England were unfortunate in defeat as Germany stole a 1-0 win in Dortmund, but who impressed for the Three Lions Gareth Southgate’s new system?
Joe Hart – 6
Probably what has become a typical Joe Hart performance. A great save or two undermined by a needless flap or three.
Kyle Walker – 6
Not one of England’s better players on the night, but solid nonetheless.
Ryan Bertrand – 7
More influential than Walker, but probably only just.
Will Keane – 7
Impressive introduction to international football in an unfamiliar system.
Gary Cahill – 7
Marshalled his defence well and very comfortable on the ball.
Chris Smalling – 7
Steady and solid, which is what we’ve come to expect from Smalling.
Jake Livermore – 6
He probably didn’t do enough to take his chance, but he was far from a disaster too.
Eric Dier – 7
Good steady performance from Tottenham’s, and now England’s, Mr Reliable.
Adam Lallana – 8
Very good on the ball and desperately unfortunate not to score after a surprising turn of pace.
Dele Alli – 7
Wasteful in front of goal, in truth, but a thorn in Germany’s side all night.
Jamie Vardy – 6
A willing runner all night, but not much quality and a very iffy dive in the first half that tarnished his performance somewhat.
Nathan Redmond (Substitute) – 6
Did well in flashes and certainly did enough with limited time to warrant further chances.
Marcus Rashford (Substitute) – 5
Didn’t really contribute much of note.
Jesse Lingard (Substitute) – 5
Luke Shaw (Substitute) – 5
Nice to see him back, but didn’t have much time to shine.
James Ward-Prowse (Substitute) – 5
Definitely one for the future, but not much opportunity to showcase himself on the night.
John Stones (Substitute) – 5
Bit of a confusing substitution really as didn’t appear to be all that necessary.
