Luke Shaw was England’s standout player in their 3-3 draw with Germany, but Harry Maguire and Nick Pope struggled at Wembley.
Nick Bishop – 4
A game that exposed Pope’s weakness by broadcasting it even before the error. He looked rattled under the German press when collecting back passes, a poor night saved by Kai Havertz’s second goal. There’s a good chance I’ll oust Jordan Pickford soon.
Luke Shaw – 8
He made a triumphant return to the England XI. He defended well against the busy left wing and tried to get the ball in behind whenever he could, especially when England were struggling. He scored a goal.
Eric Dier – 6
He made some good blocks when needed but made questionable passes at times. He failed to follow up his impressive return to the starting XI from Milan but looks set to secure his place in the World Cup squad.
Harry Maguire – 5
He kept his nose clean until a clear punishment was given. He was surprisingly lethargic for such an experienced player before easily losing possession in the build-up to Germany’s second half – moments that put the spotlight on him.
John Stones – 7
Unfortunately, after England’s attack started at the end of the first half, it did well in the 37th minute. His long pass to Sterling earlier was also a thing of beauty.
Reese James – 6
Much better than James, who looks most comfortable as a right wing-back in Southgate’s back three. Poor passing in the first half did little to help Germany win. Otherwise, a solid display.
Declan Rice – 7
England’s midfield machine delivers again. Despite opposing the talented German Ilkay Gundogan, Joshua Kimmich and Jamal Musiala, they didn’t look outmatched against Bellingham in the middle of the park. The pair have cemented their place as Qatar’s midfield duo.
Judah Bellingham – 7
Another impressive performance on the park from the youngster who is building a good partnership with Rice. He had a few balls but his strong play won England penalties.
Phil Foden – 6
Linked well with Sterling and Kane, but wanted to have more of an impact on the game. However, some of his skills remind you what kind of player he is.
Harry Kane – 7
He had already played it, but it really started to come to life when England’s attacking play opened up. As reliable as ever from the penalty spot, he remains Southgate’s first name on the team sheet.
Raheem Sterling – 7
He did better in the first half with his pace and movement on the left side of the goal. We had three great chances but were lucky not to give away a penalty.
Kyle Walker (For Stones, 37) – 6
Not much to shout about from Walker’s performance, but it gives him a platform to build on after a terrible time in Milan.
Mason Mountain (Le Foden, 66) – 6
A fantastic goal from a player who needs some goals to set him up for the season. A confidence-boosting cameo with plenty of cool moments.
Bukayo Saka (for Sterling, 66) – 6
After struggling at left-back in Italy, Saka looked most comfortable on the right wing. He provided a beautiful assist for Mount’s goal.
Jordan Henderson (for Bellingham, 90+1) – N/A
