England 2-1 Croatia: Wembley player ratings | Soccer



Jordan Pickford Weird call to the Fabian Delph breast backpass. Aimed at Andrej Kramaric's goal 6

Kyle Walker Entrepreneur when he attacked on the right side. But he could have been closer to Kramaric 6

Joe Gomez A compound presence on the back. His long throw led to England's equalizer 7

John Stones You'll be pissed at how Kramaric tricked you into the opener. He had a role in Jesse Lingard's leveler. 5

Ben Chilwell Exposed when Croatia scored. Disappointing set-pieces until your free kick takes to the winner of Harry Kane 6

Eric Dier Deal with Luka Modric. An almost costly late mistake. Knocked out when hit by Kramaric shot 6

Fabian Delph Recovered after almost giving early goal. But does Harry Winks have more in his possession? 6

Ross Barkley Reserved after react to being dispossessed with the lack of Modric. Replaced by the most effective Dele Alli 5

Raheem Sterling While his speed caused problems, he had no conviction in front of the goal. Not enough clinical 6

Harry Kane Captain was involved in the draw and produced an instinctive end to the winner 8

Marcus Rashford Offered boost left. A brilliant run by the half itself earned a better Sterling score 6

Subs Dele Alli (by Barkley 63) 7; Jesse Lingard (for Delph 73) 7; Jadon Sancho (for Rashford 73) 6


Lovre Kalinic The deciding goal denied Kane and Sterling several times. Disappointed by his goalscoring 7

Sime Vrsaljko His hands were full of Rashford before he left with an injury in the first half 6

Dejan Lovren The central defender was a key player in a defense that could not cope with England's late air attack 4

Domagoj Vida Almost sealed for Croatia with a banging header. Like Lovren he was poor in the last 15 minutes 4

Tin Jedvaj Unshakeable by Sterling's rhythm. Unmarked Kane left the line. Not convincing after flap change 5

Luka Modric He worked hard, but Croatia's talisman was not as influential as in the summer at the World Cup 6

Marcelo Brozovic He did not offer as much finesse as Ivan Rakitic did and rejected a late chance. Reserved for dissent 5

Ante Rebic He got up earlier and crossed the bleachers. Replaced in range 5

Nikola Vlasic Largely anonymous until he squirmed right to define Kramaric's goal. 6

Ivan Perisic The striker who got the better of Walker in the World Cup improved in the second half 6

Andrej Kramaric His excellent footwork beat the Stones and made way for a shot that went beyond Pickford 7

Subs Antonio Milic (for Vrsaljko 26) 6; Josip Brekalo (for Rebic ht) 6; Marko Rog (for Vlasic 79) 6
