Luke Shaw was England’s standout player in a 3-3 draw with Germany, but Harry Maguire and Nick Pope struggled at Wembley.
Nick Pope – 4
A game that revealed Pope’s weakness with the cast. Appeared nervous under the German press when collecting back passes, with his overturned save for Kai Havertz’s second goal capping a poor night. He’s unlikely to oust Jordan Pickford anytime soon.
Luke Shaw – 8
A triumphant return to England XI. Defended superbly on a busy left flank and tried to get the ball out from behind whenever he could, especially when England were struggling. He capped off his performance with a well-deserved goal.
Eric Dier – 6
Made good blocks when needed, but also made questionable passes at times. Couldn’t quite follow his superb return to Milan’s XI but appear to have booked his place in the World Cup squad.
Harry Maguire – 5
Kept his nose clean until he gave a clear penalty. An incredibly reckless tackle for such an experienced player, before losing the ball all too easily in the build-up to Germany’s second – moments that will only heighten the attention on him.
John Stones – 7
Really unhappy to be injured late in the first half after launching an English attack from deep inside the defense – which he did well on 37 minutes. His long pass for Sterling early on was also a thing of beauty.
Reece James – 6
Much better from James, who looked much more comfortable as a right-back in Southgate’s back three. Had a bad moment in the first half when his wayward pass put Germany away but little came of it. Otherwise, a solid screen.
Declan Rice – 7
The English midfield machine delivers once again. Didn’t look outnumbered in the middle of the park alongside Bellingham despite three talented German players. The pair have arguably secured their place as the starting midfield duo in Qatar.
Jude Bellingham – 7
Another impressive performance across the park from the teenager, who builds a good partnership with Rice. Had a few wayward shots but won the England penalty with tenacious play.
Phil Foden – 6
Tied well with Sterling and Kane in upcoming spells, but would have liked to influence the game more. However, some of his skills reminded you of what a player he is.
Harry Kane – 7
Played it safe early on but started to come alive as England’s attacking play opened up. Reliable as always from the penalty spot and remains Southgate’s first name on the squad roster.
Rahim Sterling – 7
A much better performance, with his speed and movement to the left a handful for Germany in the first half. Had three great chances to score, but was also lucky not to give away a penalty.
Kyle Walker – 6
Not much to shout about from Walker’s performance, but will give him a platform to build on after a terrible time at Milan.
Mason mount – 6
A goal brilliantly taken by a player who needs goals and assists to prepare for the season. A cameo that builds confidence.
Bukayo Saka – 6
After struggling at left-back in Italy, Saka seemed much more comfortable on the right wing. Provided a fine assist for Mount’s goal.
Jordan Henderson – N/A
