England’s World Cup dream came to an end on Saturday evening as they fell to defeat against reigning champions France. Here is how the individuals fared on the night.

Starting 11:

Jordan Pickford (7)- Apart from the two goals he conceded he was one of England’s better players and saved some crucial shots from the French side.

Kyle Walker (7)- Was strong defensively and stopped Mbappe playing at his best.

Harry Maguire (6)- Lost his man for the second goal and has had better games during this England campaign.

John Stones (6.5)- Was consistent throughout. He continued to link up with the midfield.

Luke Shaw (6.5)- Was creative down the left flank but couldn’t deliver that vital cross into the box.

Declan Rice (6.5)- Was able to control the midfield well. Could have done better with the first French goal.

Jordan Henderson (6)- Linked up well with the wingers to create space in behind.

Jude Bellingham (7.5)- Kept that positive energy in the team and ran the midfield along with Rice and Henderson.

Bukayo Saka (8)- Was the most creative in the team and caused that French a problem down the right side all game.

Phil Foden (6.5)- Was the least creative out of both wingers and couldn’t match the same energy Saka had throughout the game.

Harry Kane (7.5)- Scored England’s first goal through a penalty. However, he missed another penalty late in the second half which he could have levelled the score.


Grealish (3)- Came on in the last couple of minutes for Stones. Wasn’t enough time to get involved.

Mason Mount (6)- Came on for Henderson and managed to create the second penalty for Kane after a lovely run in behind the France defence.

Raheem Sterling (5)- Came on for Saka and couldn’t get involved in the game as much as Saka was.

Marcus Rashford (6)- Came on for Foden and came close with a freekick in the dying seconds of the game.
