England continued the perfect start to their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign with a 2-0 win against Ukraine on a poignant Sunday afternoon. Express Sport provides the player ratings from Wembley Stadium as the Three Lions’ international break finished with a flourish.


Jordan Pickford: 6

One of the easiest clean sheets of his England career. Wasn’t tested all evening.


Kyle Walker: 8

Completely nullified Ukraine’s biggest threat in Mykhaylo Mudryk before the Chelsea winger was hauled off after an hour.

John Stones: 7

Was class epitomised, as he so often is in an England shirt. Pace test against Mudryk was an intriguing prospect but never materialised.

Harry Maguire: 7

Showcased some superb passing range from the back and was dominant in the air, as always.

Ben Chilwell: 7

Gareth Southgate has been left with a selection headache after Ben Chilwell didn’t put a step wrong in Luke Shaw’s absence. England’s starting left-back at Euro 2024 is anyone’s guess.


Declan Rice: 6

Silently did his job on a day when England did the vast majority of the attacking.

Jordan Henderson: 6

He will hope he can keep his place over Kalvin Phillips in Southgate’s midfield three ahead of likely his final international tournament.

Jude Bellingham: 7

Continued to look at home on the international stage on his 10th successive England start. Impressive intent when carrying the ball.

Bukayo Saka: 9

Arsenal are oh so lucky to have him. Assisted Harry Kane’s opener with a delightful inswinging ball to the back post. Moments later, he bent a sumptuous curling strike into the top corner. Nailed on starter.

James Maddison: 8

Did plenty right on his first England start. Five key passes on the day.

Harry Kane: 7

Scored again. Of course, he did. Perhaps should’ve scored more by his standards.


Ivan Toney: 5

Well-deserved debut. The first Brentford player to represent England since 1939.

Conor Gallagher: 4

Had a good chance to net his first England goal just moments after coming on.

Jack Grealish: 5

Stretched his legs.
