England locked horns with Denmark at Wembley Stadium earlier tonight, hoping to pick up a win and secure a place in the finals of the Euro 2020 tournament. Mikkel Damsgaard broke the deadlock around the 30-minute-mark as he scored a mesmerizing goal from a set-piece situation. Simon Kjaer’s own goal just nine minutes later levelled things out; however, Harry Kane’s goal in extra time decided the fate of the match as The Three Lions emerged victorious at the end of the day.
Let’s take a look at how each England player fared during the clash against Denmark.
England Players Rated In Win Vs Denmark
Jordan Pickford 7
The Everton shot-stopper made some important saves tonight, but his nervousness grew as the game went on. As a result, his goal kicks often failed to reach the intended target.
Kyle Walker 7
The Manchester City right-back wasn’t heavily involved in the attacking gameplay, but he fared quite well defensively.
John Stones 8
John Stones was a rock at the back tonight. Not only did he make important clearances and tackles from time to time, but he partnered well with Harry Maguire to keep things tidy at the back.
Harry Maguire 8.5
The Manchester United skipper won numerous crucial aerial duels to assert dominance and keep things in order at the back. Despite picking up a yellow card in the first half, he kept a cool head to lead his side’s defence for the rest of the game.
Luke Shaw 8
Shaw had a big influence on the attacking side of the game as he linked up well with Sterling (and then Grealish) to progress upfield. Some of his set-piece deliveries were quite impressive, and given the form he’s in, it’s not much of a surprise.
Declan Rice 7
The West Ham United man played a crucial role at the centre of the park as he shielded the backline effectively; however, he kept giving the ball away time and again.
Kalvin Phillips 7.5
The Leeds United midfielder had a lot of defending to do tonight, but his ball distribution impressed the most. He wasn’t hesitant about playing forward passes either.
Mason Mount 7
The Chelsea star was heavily involved in everything going forward as he maintained a healthy pass accuracy rate.
Bukayo Saka 8
The Arsenal star forced the equaliser off Simon Kjaer around the 39-minute-mark. He produced some brilliant individual moments down the right flank but was taken off in the second half in order to fit in Jack Grealish.
Raheem Sterling 8
The Manchester City winger created all sorts of menace for the opposition defenders down the left-wing as he could carve his way past them with little to no effort. He played a major role in England’s equaliser and even earned the penalty in extra time.
Harry Kane 9
The Tottenham striker’s link-up play was exceptionally well. He set up the first goal for his side and even scored the rebound from the penalty.
