Kyle Walker – sold John Stones short with a first-half pass but generally solid 6

John Stones – not really being noticed in this tournament, which is god news for the centre-back from Barnsley 6

Harry Maguire – has added so much to this side since return from injury - including a goal now 8

Luke Shaw – having been involved in both goals against Germany, he made the two goals in four minutes which settled this one 8

Kalvin Phillips – that he got his first rest of the tournament shows his importance to this team. Held his discipline and dodged a booking 6

Declan Rice – a swerving shot was the eye-catcher but an excellent performance as a holding midfielder 7

Jadon Sancho – a bold selection choice justified by his positive approach and the odd moment of magic 7

Mason Mount – will be better for the 90 minutes after his enforced isolation 7

Raheem Sterling – a brilliant pass for Harry Kane's opener and played in Shaw to create the third 8

Harry Kane – very nearly scored a hat-trick. His Germany goal has transformed him the way we all hoped it would 8
