England 5-0 Czech Republic ratings: Who caught the eye at Wembley

Dominic Fifield at Wembley


England

Jordan Pickford

His kicking was erratic at times but he saved solidly and claimed the clean sheet targeted in memory of Gordon Banks. 7

Kyle Walker

His initial bursts with Sancho drove the Czech Republic back. Others are challenging him for his place but he still offers so much down the flank. 7

Michael Keane

There was the occasional pang of anxiety but generally defensively sound, albeit against feeble opponents. 7

Harry Maguire

Will have enjoyed leaving a mark on Vydra after the forward pinpointed him as England’s weakest link. 7

Ben Chilwell

Offered balance and a galloping threat. Six caps in and utterly at home in these surroundings. 8

Jordan Henderson

Forever driving beyond the Czech backline, setting the tone from the centre. Industrious and impressive. 8

Eric Dier

Pictured as Alli in the match-day programme and crocked early by Soucek. Not his night. 6

Dele Alli

Rusty after only 82 minutes of club football since January but a mature if unspectacular display. 7

Raheem Sterling

Absolutely outstanding. Incisive, inventive and irrepressible, with a first England hat-trick reward for ruthless excellence. 9

Jadon Sancho

Not everything the teenager did came off but plenty did and it was all thrilling to watch. 8

Harry Kane

A complete display, whether playmaking from deep, thumping in a penalty or firing shots at goal. Inspirational. 8

Substitutes

Ross Barkley

(for Dier 17) Progressive, playing as if he had shrugged off the shackles imposed by his club manager. 8

Declan Rice

(for Alli 63) Cheered on to the turf to anchor midfield, with this a gentle introduction to his England career. 7

Callum Hudson-Odoi

(for Sterling 70) Eclipsed Duncan Edwards as England’s youngest competitive debutant, and panicked Kalas into conceding the fifth. 7
